Walked to the reserve this morning on arrival a few birders leaving ie John Ward et al making my
way to Long Hedge where in the hide I met an old friend Tony Blake, it had been around 25 years so
we chatted for some time no Osprey present just a few Mallard and Little Grebe.
Red Kite,Sparrowhawk and Kestrel.Enter Tony Hulls ,then an odd scraping at the door it was
the efficient Geoff Lapworth battening the hatches for the impending storm,he was unaware of
our prescence.It was soon time to leave I said goodbye to the two Tony's and I was homeward
bound,also today a couple of splendid Kingfishers.
