Early June Treats.

 A smart male Bullfinch was I think feeding on the Wild Thyme buds on the terrace.
 There were plenty of Azure Damselflies on the garden pond and also a Broad bodied chaser.
 Several Whitethroat are breeding around the reservoir in the bankside vegetation. Today, 4th June a Reed Warbler was showing well near the Board Walk. Not a species we get every year at Thornton.
 A pair of Kingfishers are frequenting the top inflow pool and no doubt breeding locally.
A very black Mink was hunting near Retreat farm. It was being mobbed by a crowd of the local birds, including Crows, Magpies and Jackdaws.
