Not much on the lake but 1 Cuckoo and 1 Marsh Harrier overhead.Near the oxbow was a hen Pheasant with 4 chick's and a Slow worm was catching the sun on the track.After navigating the cattle near the metal bridge i came across a pair of Mute Swan's with 8 recently hatched cygnets and the cob was not going to let me by so i crossed the bridge going into the field and was surrounded by at least 60 Meadow Brown's. At marsh hide were 6 adult and 11 juvenile Grey Lag's, 3 Lapwing, 1 Snipe and 1 Brown Hare.
