Sunday 26th May

The warmest day this year was yesterday and it certainly brought out the wildlife.

The swans on the fishing pond ventured from the reeds with their brood of seven cygnets and led them straight up the bank. This morning they decided to walk them along the path, 150 yards to the long pond, probably safer away from the fishing fraternity.

While watching the swans a Little Grebe crossed the pond on the surface, quite unusual they normally dive at any sign of human activity.

The Large Damselflies were out in force and during the taking of the shots I noticed a Dark Tussock moth caterpillar in the Willow tree.

Today the Cuckoos were back, we only heard one calling but Ian and Chris had seen both.
