Doe Park Reservoir

Tuesday 11th May a.m.

  A sunny morning with a temperature of 5°C as I walked from home to Doe Park Reservoir seeing a Grey Wagtail as I reached the Reservoir and a Grey Heron departing.  Just a couple of Canadas and a Great Crested Grebe on the water but there were eight Sand Martins flying around, later joined by a couple of SwallowsChiffchaff could be heard and Whitethroat and Willow Warbler were seen, a LT Tit was carrying food and a Blue Tit posed briefly.  A Mistle Thrush was singing and an Oystercatcher flew over the water briefly stopping before moving on.  The highlight of the morning was seeing a Common Sandpiper which was next to a Mallard, others were Kestrel, Bullfinch, Goldfinch, Song Thrush and Chaffinch.  A couple of Butterflies were around a Peacock didn't want a picture taking but a Small Copper was more obliging.
