Chilly but lively

Nice morning at the lake with reed buntings, long tailed tits and a pied flycatcher busily foraging among the reeds, house martins skimming the water for insect larvae, great crested grebe and tufties sailing along, black headed gulls squabbling and Her Royal Swanness dozing on her very large nest. Managed to pick out the wood warbler’s song amongst the cacophony of wrens, blackcaps, rooks, chaffinches, willow warblers etc.  Look out for the lovely ladies smock (or cuckoo flower), now in full bloom here and there thanks to the council’s less severe mowing regime.
