I spent the next couple of hours wandering between Long Lake and the Willow hide area, switching from long lens to macro as the mood took me. Everywhere is very leafy now, making it difficult to locate small birds (unless the small birds are Robins, of which I saw a multitude). There were lots of singing Garden Warblers about, the Willow Warbler by Long Lake is still around, and I heard two different Reed Warblers there as well.
Some more of the things I didn't photograph. I went over to look out across West Lake, just as something big and heavy made a huge splash in the water. I waited, and a minute or so later a big carp jumped almost fully clear of the water. Meanwhile, Swifts were overhead on and off through the morning, and I noticed a Great Spotted Woodpecker flying over a couple of times, carrying food.
I sat at a picnic table to pack away my things, and a Robin instantly bounced up onto the table edge to examine me and my belongings in case I had anything eatable for it. Deciding after a couple of minutes that I didn't, it flew down onto the grass.
While I was sitting there, I noticed a Blue Tit visiting a large nestbox on the visitor centre wall, so decided to stick around and try for some photos.
It's funny how, when you stop to observe A, you often then notice B, and then C. While watching the Blue Tit, I saw a Wren nipping into the space below, where the loos are and where there's a bit of overhanging roof. I went in for a closer look, and discovered that hanging under the overhang was a nesting pouch, and it was full of Wren nest and baby Wrens. There are picnic tables under here too, so I sat quietly at one of them.
