I paid a very quick visit to Adwick Washlands today. It was very hot (28 degrees!) but it was nice to hear lots of birds singing in the trees.
The most interesting thing I saw today was some Lapwing chicks skulking in the long grass near the central viewing point on the reserve. Mum was keeping a watchful eye on me throughout!
A number of Redshank and Avocet were on the main mere, with Grey Heron and Little Egret fishing on the margins of the water.
On my way up the path I caught sight of a nice Whitethroat in one of the hawthorn bushes.
Just a quick visit, as I said, but it’s always a pleasure to be out enjoying nature on a sunny day.
