Dave and I strolled around the patch counting about five Chiffchaffs, none of which showed well, before reaching the drying pool where four Little Ringed Plovers remained in situ.
The furthest flash then came up trumps as it held a pair of Redshanks. A welcome return after an almost complete blank last year.
As the temperature rose we started seeing insects. Several types of bee buzzed around the blackthorn blossom, and a single Dark-edged Bee Fly showed well.
