Saturday 27th August a.m.
 A sunny start feeling warmer than the temperature of 9°C with no wind blowing making the reservoir very calm.We saw 30 Canadas in the top field and there was a Cormorant on the valve tower, a Grey Heron was looking for food at the waters edge.At the top end of the reservoir were some Mallards and a Goosander, there were also a couple of waders behind them but out of range to get an ID.A walk up the hill provided Collared Dove,Robin,Mipit and Starling, we also chased a Green-veined White Butterfly in order to get a snap.We also saw Pied and Grey Wagtails and a few Swallows were feeding over the water and the surrounding fields.
