Photographed this Juvenile Moorhen that was very inquisitive with the pond weed. There has been a Juvenile Ruff present for the last few days on the main lake.
The Ruff seen bottom left of the Grey Heron. Soon after it just vanished to one of the islands and went missing for hours. Overhead a Hobby was chasing some of the House Martins and a Peregrine was also chasing a meal, not sure if either was successful.
The numbers of Gadwall are now increasing I had counted 103 with 67 Teal and 65 Shoveler. Also present was a single Widgeon.
This stunning Little Grebe gave very good close views on the main lake, the female was close by.
