This was my first visit to the site and as I walked along the farmers field/footpath there was plenty of small common stuff diving in and out of the rape seed field as I approached the board walk I was greeted by the explosive call of a Cettis Warbler lurking in the undergrowth, there is a few of these scattered around the site, I also flushed out a frankly remarkable 8 Mistle Thrush from the field and some Starlings (seems to be a lot of Starlings floating around this summer), the reedbed looked thick and healthy...hmmm this wasn't going to be easy for Reed Warbler shots.
You can see from the below shot getting a "clear" image was hard thanks to the reed stems.

There was plenty of bugs crawling and flying around...technical term for a numpty like me.
Whilst sat there I could see a pair of Common Whitethroats and at least one Lesser Whitethroat, again images were pants thanks to the bushes but shall try again.
I saw three Hobbies hawking high for insects and they never really came close except one that came from behind me low and quick and from out of the sun it's shadow on the ground alerting me to it flying over.
