Common Buzzard: A great day out after work, I started down on Weaver bend where I was covered in flies. In fact everywhere I walked I seemed to be followed by them.

This stunning huge Buzzard was seen in Tank no.5
Grey Heron: This was in the lagoon in Tank no.6 along with Cuckoo, Sedge warbler, Common Whitethroat and Kestrel.

Insects where abundant, GatekeepersSkippers, Small Tortoiseshell and loads of Thick-legged Flower Beetles. Great time to be out in the sun surrounded by birdsong and mini beasts.  

Spotted Wood Butterfly: This stunner was seen just off the bridge running over the motorway leading down to the Weaver Bend. Chiffchaff, Goldfinch, Bullfinch and tits where seen around this area.
