turtle dove and a male yellow wagtail. The former was seen behind Hadham Hall before flying off towards St Cecilia's church whereas the wagtail was feeding at the water's edge of the main lagoon. Also seen around here were several linnets, 1 male reed bunting and 2 pied wagtails. On the water were 7 tufted duck; the largest number I have seen here.
An immature black tailed skimmer and 6 common blue damselfies were recorded and photographed as well as a common blue butterfly. Other butterflies were in the form of meadow brown, large and small skipper, small white and 1 comma.
