Went around this afternoon and saw a pair of very busy Dippers collecting material and nest building along with a pair of Grey Wagtails, not much action on the feeding station which may suffer from being too open as kids just walk around the side but the table at the visitors centre does not seem to be hampered by it as my pics will attest

If i hadn't seen such riches, i could live with being poor
