Monday 9th September

It is official I am now stepping down to four day week! Well we will see how long that lasts for, at least it started well, although God only knows how I would have fitted all the jobs I had too do in, with an extra day of weekend.

I had a walk around today, I reasoned that the Reservoir would be quiet with the rain that was falling. I was right for a change although there were few birds. I made the mistake of going round the back of the fishing pool, now that is what I call an overgrown path. I am glad I had a thick coat on. It was the tunnel of death with five foot high nettles converging to meet in the middle. I might not have got stung, but I was soaked by the time I had fought my way to the other end!

The most interesting thing I saw today was a Hornet, (I’m glad I didn’t meet it on the aformentioned path there would have been no where to run. I did see a few warblers today with Blackcap, Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff all seen. There were very good numbers of hirundines with estimates of 250 House Martin, 150 Swallow and 100 Sand Martin.
