Tuesday Spring 8 - Welton Water

Large Skipper (male)
Blue-tailed Damselfly
Record shot of Juvenile Heron
This venue is normally very reliable at this time of year, but there were no Kingfishers this time, and the numbers of butterflies and damselflies were a lot lower than last year. A Buzzard passing over east was the first seen by the groups at this location, but no sign of the usual Marsh Harrier or occasional Barn Owl. A doe Roe Deer and her kid were a nice surprise for the morning group. Willow Tit was present and a recently fledged family of Marsh Tits. Overall a rather disappointing day.
