STEVAN NIKOLS on Monday, 29 May 2017
Of note, Sunday, May 28: Hobby, Cuckoo x 2, pair each of Great Spotted Woodpeckers and Treecreepers feeding young, lots of fledglings on East Marsh islands but vegetation making them hard to count, including at least one Redshank chick. Butterflies included a Painted Lady near the wind pump. Lots of damselflies around the reserve including good numbers of Red-eyed.

Usual stuff + pair Little Egrets on River Pool - heard but didn't spot min 3 Cuckoos.
