12th July 2009

Today's WeBS counts didn't produce anything unusual, though there was a juvenile Moorhen at Terry's Pool. The Coot brood at Terry's Pool was down to 1 chick, but there were still 3 chicks at Windmill Pool. I also noted a Reed Bunting at Terry's Pool, 2 Bullfinches at Engine Pool, and single Gatekeeper and Speckled Wood butterflies at Windmill Pool. 15 Common Terns were seen from the causeway.

P.S. Went birding with John Yardley in Worcestershire and saw a Spotted Flycatcher and 2 Little Egrets, both of which were lifers for me.
