After a bit of a dry period for birds on the reserve, things seem to be finally 'hotting up'. A group of birders from Doncaster, S.Yorks, turned up a superb juvenile Black Tern on the main pool on 30th August. The bird remained for most of the day and was extremely obliging. It was constantly harrased by Swallows throughout its stay. Also that day there was a Spotted Redshank on the reserve and Wheatear, Common Sandpiper, Dunlin (2), Ringed Plover (4) and Whimbrel.
