Our first wildlife picnic took place on Saturday 11th June. The weather was fine and sunny but very windy at times. The large windbreak seemed a good idea in theory but proved hard to set up and fell down pretty quickly - a lesson for next year, work out how to
set it up before bringing it along! Anyway, once settled, we had a very pleasant afternoon watching the wildlife of the lake and listening to the birds singing, which included Lesser Whitethroat and Reed Warbler. We also had a moth land on my beer bottle, which
was later identified as a probable Marbled Minor. Highlight of the day was a Common Tern fishing the lake and successfully catching a few small ones. A very pleasant day and certainly something we will repeat next year. Sighting
details are below.
Birds - 18 Species
