This morning several Bee Orchid plants were found around the reserve but mainly at the northern end of the Deep Pit, on the inner bank. PS.
This morning, at about 11.30, an Osprey flew north through the site. Some Bee Orchids are in flower and some Northern Marsh-orchids. PS.
This afternoon a Red Kite called as it flew over the site. The Little Ringed Plover pairs have both got two chicks, one pair of chicks is already almost full grown. There are several tern chicks on the platforms and the Great Crested Grebes on the Slurry Lagoon have a chick. PS.
An adult Peregrine was seen with prey, possibly a Jackdaw, accompanied by a juvenile bird on one of the pylons. The juvenile Peregrine later flew off down river. Two Little Ringed Plovers were seen on the Slurry Lagoon. RW.
