Wednesday 25th May

Took the dog for a long walk, down the Lane around the back of the small pool and back around the reservoir. In truth it was rather quiet with a few warblers still singing. As I suspected the Great Crested Grebes have lost a couple of nests with only five of seven remaining. A pair of Coot have nested on the concrete wall of the outflow pipe, so a rise in water levels would be disastrous for them!

There was a small party of Linnet again on the south-east end of the Reservoir. I though I could hear a distant Cuckoo by the small pool, but it was rather windy. However at the west end on the way back a Cuckoo was heard and seen in the hedgerow on the other side of the wet meadow.
