Walking on Sunshine

There’s not a lot to report from the nest today (33 has brought a fish back for Maya and they’ve both been around the nest for most of the day) but it has been a divine day nonetheless. The Dawn Chorus Walk at the reserve this morning went ahead with a great group of people. Tim and Lloyd both led groups which heard Blackcap, Song Thrush, Garden Warbler, Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethroat, Wren, Robin, Dunnock, Blackbird, Chaffinch, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Bullfinch, Tufted Duck, Goldfinch, Sedge Warbler, Reed Bunting, Long-tailed Tit, Cuckoo, Skylark and a few more, including a sneaky Water Vole sighting!

The reserve is buzzing with life and the meadows are coming into their own, too: butterflies (including Orange Tip, Brimstone and Small Tortoiseshell) and damselflies have been seen abundantly around the centre, the water has looked Mediterranean at times and in short it’s been an absolutely beautiful day here at Lyndon. Come and visit us tomorrow for more of the same!

Here’s a few short videos from the Osprey nest today: check out the colour of that water!
