A sunny start to the day as I arrived early at Swillington Ings with the initial 11°C temperature soon rising. A good walk round the Lakes and Reed beds hearing Bitterns booming, Cetti's Warbler and briefly seeing Bearded Tits and a Red Kite flying over.The highlights for pictures were Reed Warbler, Sedge Warbler, Common Tern and Reed Bunting.
Plenty other birds were also present with Canadas, Greylags and Coots already with young, others included Gadwall, Gt Crested Grebe, Willow Warbler, Pochard, Shoveler, Tufted Duck and Wren.
