Purple Loose-strife and Reed Mace
Sunflower and Scentless Mayweed
Ragwort and mixed plants
Still amazed by the wild flower display this year especially considering that in early April (only 3-4 months ago) a lot of the area was bare earth (pic 5). Be good to keep this kind of diversity as a permanent feature of the nature reserve but that will involve regenerating the land to encourage this abundance of seed rich pioneering species- either through ploughing or grazing.
Common Tern, Common Sandpiper, Hobby and Peregrine this evening.
