The reservoir was rather quiet. Several Yellow Wagtails graced the perimeter, with an obvious passage of Skylarks and Meadow Pipits. Warblers included Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler and Blackcap. Four juvenile Ringed Plovers were in Rainbow. A female Shoveler was off the inlet, with Greater Black Backed Gull and Yellow Legged Gull. Meeting up with Bob H, our unproductive search for the Lesser Scaup continued. Two Ravens honked over Toft.
With limited opportunity to photograph any birds, attention was turned to butterflies with Comma and Small Copper being most obliging.
