Lazy Saturday

A couple of hours at Wheldrake Ings early doors revealed a Grasshopper Warbler reeling near the pool, plus a pair of sleepy drake Garganey napping on the pool itself. They had begun moulting, their job having been done for the year, leaving the female to raise the ducklings unseen in the marsh. Two Eqyptian Geese dropped in and my first Banded Demoiselles were flitting about by the river.

Always nice to be in a reedbed in spring - full of chirps, whistles, clicks and squeaks of Reed and Sedge Warblers. Class.
