At least 2 Reed Warblers are in residence at opposite ends of the reservoir. One was seen carrying food on the 14th June. I have seen Red Kite on two occasions and hopefully they are breeding locally. Two Hobbys have also been seen hunting hirundines and dragonflies. On the 8th June a Broad Bodied Chaser was over the garden pond.
The sign explaining about the tern rafts has been installed. On the 18th a pair of Common Terns were sitting on the rafts and feeding over the reservoir. It would be fantastic if they decide to breed this year.
