Velator/Wrafton Pond

On the tour round the reserve this morning at least a dozen unringed Long-tailed Tits, 3 chiffchaff seen, and a Blackbird alarming drew me to an ivy-clad tree with a Tawny Owl in it, first in tnhe reserve since 25th August.

Wrafton pond had 3 Scaup, 4 Gadwall and 2 Goldeneye - the female having been joined by a smart male!

Distant shot, but when it swam closer it started diving, and then the rain set in again....
