10.00 to 15.15.00
A party of 2 set off from the car park and walked across road from car park entrance to move from screen to screen. They weren't Hides as we know.
We saw 3 Common Buzzards wheeling over the car park. That was a good start
Walked around the Reserve visiting all the hides/screens in turn.
I remembered the visit in May2012 where we had heard then seen a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker & June2013.where the Society had visited but not had any luck with the Woodpecker.
At the corner were I had seen the Lesser Spotted Woodpecker we hung around for a while before continuing. At The Phoenix Hide this was a screen looking in two directions both overlooking reeds. Spotted a Kingfisher perched on a reed. This was a great sight and made the day.
Eventually returned to the car park after a great day out. Just a pity that we didn’t get more people.
