The great tit parents continued to astound us with their incredible hard work as they brought food into the chicks at least every minute this morning. The nest cam is proving very popular with everyone; staff and visitors alike enabling us a privileged view of the great tit's private life.
Elsewhere on the reserve this morning a spotted flycatcher was seen at Hookers Pit and the bittern continues to call there. Also at Hookers there were two avocets, a number of hobby's and calling cuckoos. This morning two of the hobby's were sitting on the shingle beside the entrance track waiting for the day to warm up.
Of interest to moth enthusiasts was a pebble hook tip moth photographed sitting beside the Willow trail path.
