Bank Swallows at Grafham Water

Quick stretch of Willow's legs along the dam at lunchtime revealed a dozy drake Pintail lounging in Gaynes, plus several Sand Martins (at bloody last!) cruising over the trees on the lagoons shore. Also about were a few Redwings, Several Buzzards and a smart male Grey Wag on the dam. Numbers of Pied Wags and Mippits seem to be building up as is usual for the time of year as they head north with a dozen of the former and two dozen of the latter along the dam shore. Willow entertained herself by catching and eating a mouse. Nice.
