There was some blue sky and sun. Cloud was building up while we were there.
It was lovely to see bird feeders along the fences next to the footpath and every so often when no-one was around the birds were feeding. Surprisingly male and female Reed Buntings! Wow, I haven't seen any of these for some time! I used to get them in my back gadren when I was a child. An absolutely stunning bird associated with wetlands.
After taking several photos of the Little Grebes, my husband called me to see a pair of Grey Wagtails also in front of the hide. These are also stunning birds. I got quite excited and carried away taking photos of them. Never been so close, that's why!
Around the reserve we heard several singing Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs. Not long migrated in they are now sussing out the territories.
