16th August 2009

I was at the lakes between 8.15am and 9.30am today. Bird sightings were broadly similar to those reported recently. However, of particular note were a Common Sandpiper that I flushed near the sailing club, and a Lesser Whitethroat spotted fleetingly in the southwest corner of Windmill Pool in the hedgerows adjoining the paddocks.

Butterflies consisted only of Speckled Wood and Small White, whilst dragonflies and damselflies were limited to a few suspected Common Blues and one probable Brown Hawker.

It was nice to see a few juvenile Great Crested Grebes and one juvenile Common Tern on site.
