I was delighted to encounter a family of spotted flycatchers with at least three juveniles en route to my webs count on Blackmoor Pool. They were accompanied by two willow warblers, a chiffchaff, a marsh tit, adult and juvenile goldfinches plus I heard a bullfinch. On the lake the little grebes have a second family of four and I briefly heard a water rail. Nowt as usual on Priddy Pool, not surprising as it’s nearly all reeds now.
