Some reasonable weather at long last meant I could go for a walk round Hewenden Reservoir with sunny spells and a start temperature of 9°C. On arrival at the viaduct there were twenty Swifts flying around, the reservoir held Canadas, Mallards, a couple of Cormorants made a brief visit and an Oystercatcher was later seen on the banking.
As I walked round Warbles were busy feeding young, I saw Blackcap, Whitethroat, Willow Warbler and a Chiffchaff was singing. A juvenile Robin was thinking about tucking in to a worm, Goldfinches had juveniles with them and a solitary Greenfinch was seen. Others were Grey Heron, Swallow, House Martin, and a family of Wrens.
