Elsewhere, a Night Heron was seen going into a daytime roost at the Oppen Pits on the RSPB Reserve.
The flowers are excellent at the moment and creating a very colourful scene. Bird's-foot Trefoil is particularly good and creating great swathes of colour whilst more subtle plants include a few more Grass Vetchlings appearing and the finding of a plant of the rare Yellow Vetch at a new location within the recording area.
