Bits and Bobs from the Patch 17/6/11

Richard spotted a Water Vole today, was great to see one, its been months since I last saw a Water Vole on the patch. Only managed a record shot as he/she didnt come out completely into the open.
A pair of tiny coots were observed and one of them (as per the photo here) seemed quite intrigued at its own reflection!
Coot admiring its reflection :)


Reed Warbler


Water Vole
Plenty of Reed Warbler still around the reserve and a few Lesser and Common Whitethroat were noted. Quite a number of Swifts, a couple of Sand Martin and a few House Martin and Swallows. We also had our first Ringlet butterfly of the summer.
