Velator reserve

The river was running very brown again this morning, and it will probably be the same tomorrow. However it did help to bring the bird of the day into the reserve - A Kingfisher flew across the pond and landed on a perch I had put there by accident recently. It was only when I looked at it later on that I realised it would be perfect for a Kingfisher - this one duly smacked the tiny fish it was carrying a few times before it headed off. Also present: Buzzard, 5 Redwing,1 Song Thrush, most of the usual suspects plus calling Tawny Owl and Cetti's Warbler.

Nearby on Wrafton Pond, 2 drake Pochard.
