Nothing very exciting but one pair of Gt Crested Grebes have finally decided to nest, same place as last year – a floating nest in the Water Bistort. Other than that, a Green ‘Pecker in W paddock and a Cetti’s singing at the end of the main boardwalk.

There's been an adult Little Egret in the trees by W lake for a couple of days, and 2 imm Grey Herons present. The Pyramidal Orchids are particularly nice this year.

The Greater Butterfly Orchids are still surviving although this was the better of only 2 flower spikes I cd find. Also a nice patch of Pyramidal Orchids of which these were 3. Both cropped phone pix.
