Sunny Sunday

Hobby eating a dragonfly (probably a Migrant Hawker as quite a few of these about) 
Kestrel on the mound- 4 or 5 of these hunting on the mounds 
Ringing session this morning produced a few migrants- Chiffchaff, Sedge Warbler, Whitethroat and Reed Warbler. Not so many migrants about in the continuing hot and sunny weather 
Sedge Warbler 
Paradise Shelducks (I think) flying over 
The Southern Lake from the Mound- plenty of ducks on the southern lake. The reeds are taking off better now (below). The Mound is due to mowed this week and soon seeded to produce a species rich grassland over the southern restored area.
