Spent a good few hours today, in glorious sunshine, wandering round No.3 bed. Autumn passage, added to the gradual lowering of the water level on the bed, means that waders are now a daily occurrence. Six Black-tailed Godwits, 1 Little Ringed Plover, 2 Snipe, 2 Green Sandpipers and 265 Lapwings were today’s tally. Other interesting sightings included: the regular Kingfisher in front of the Morgan Hide, a single female Pintail and 3 Peregrines (an adult and 2 juveniles) which drifted north over the bed, temporarily scattering the waders. A male Banded Demoiselle (see photo)on the South Bank was also a good dragonfly record for the bed.

Cheers David

Yesterday Ash Radford began clearing a path around the New Pool on No.1 bed to provide better access for future dragonfly surveys. I re-visited the pool this afternoon and was delighted to find this ovipositing Brown Hawker plus lots of Common Darters and a Ruddy Darter. Well done Ash!
