An adult Grey Heron was on the far side of W lake. A Lesser Whitethroat was singing and seen briefly by the high level path that runs behind the far side of W lake and a Common Whitethroat seems to have territory by the dipping pond – the photo below is of that individual. A pair of Mallards were on the dipping pool 2 days ago with 6 small ducklings – this morning they were already down to two [mum + 1 below]. I wonder what’s taking them. In the band of trees between the dragonfly pond and Cogan Wood proper, there a a lot of Common Spotted Orchid leaf bracts so it will be a really good show in there when they finally produce flower spikes.
