A Barn Swallow takes a rest from feeding in the keen easterly wind - the hirundines were keeping very low above the water taking advantage of the insects on the leeward side of the plantation.
The first Sedge Warbler of the Year for the site was keeping low at the front of the lagoon.
A pair of Blue Tit were foraging in the dead stuff above the Sedge Warbler.
A small 'charm' of Goldfinch fed alongside a pair of Linnet.
A Green Sandpiper was, suprisingly, the first this year at the site. The Whooper Swan 'on patrol' chases off a Canada Goose.
A pair of Grey Wagtail wait to feed - the male showing a black throat patch.
