A pair of Red Damselflies were on the garden pond, joined later by a Broad bodied chaser.
A bachelor group of Pochard were brief visitors.
There is now a pair of Reed Warblers, one of which was carrying nesting material. They prefer to build their nest in phragmites reed. There is only typha and sedge at Thornton. I have no evidence that Reed Warbler has bred at Thornton.
