This morning a Marsh Harrier was seen over the Slurry Lagoon. MG
This morning, after the rain had finished, a Purple Hairstreak was seen along the Lower Path, near the gates, on brambles beside the big oak tree. PS.
A Hobby was watched for ten minutes this afternoon trying to catch a Swallow by the railway bridge. In the end it gave up and flew towards Holme Pierrepont. On the Slurry Lagoon there was a Greenshank and a Redshank plus three Yellow-legged Gulls. PS.
