Sherpa/Velator/Wrafton Pond

Started at Wrafton Pond with camera, but no sign of the Garganey. Noticed that the female Swan was off her nest with the male. On closer inspection she was trailing 6 cygnets!! This seems extremely early to me?

Sherpa was busier with Reed and Sedge Warblers, and Swallow, House Martin and Sand Martin all present along with 3 Swifts. Also drake Garganey which promptly flew back to Wrafton Pond. So did I and have a better picture, which I'll have a fight with later.

Not much in the reserve - very juvenile Blackbird.
