A juvenile Red-backed Shrike was just outside the reserve viewed from a public footpath along the bank of the Thames.
The current visitors centre will eventually become an educational building. An interesting strucure indeed - my first thought was 'yuk' ! (and remains so).
A Wood Sandpiper was just a bit too distant.
A distant Northern Wheatear.
A few Little Egret were dotted around the reserve.
This Ruff showed well from the hide.
My best view of a Water Vole. This is a top site for these declining creatures.
Roesel's Bush Cricket Metrioptera roeselii. A scarce cricket, mainly found near coasts but increasing inland.
A Migrant Hawker.
