On the reserve, the highlight was a Tawny Owl flying through. Other sightings included Kingfisher, Jay, Blackcap 3, Chiffchaff 3, Willow Warbler, Whitethroat and Spotted Flycatcher.
Flora included what I took to be a patch of Touch-me-not Balsam in the north part of the reserve, but the book gives the flowering period as July-Sept. Any ideas anybody? Other flora included Jack-by-the-hedge, Greater Stitchwort, purple vetch sp., Red Campion, Bluebell, Forget-me-not, Pignut, Dandelion, Daisy, Buttercup
