29th April 2011

Purple Heron!! - Flying from Wetland 9 towards Rookery, awful photos, but a great bird... (MVCP and County Tick)
Holly Blue -surprisingly this seems to be the first one I have photographed on the park.

Highlight of the day was undoubtedly seeing the 1st summer Purple Heron drop into the reeds at the back of wetland 9 and then fly off again towards Rookery. The heron had been seen flying into the reeds at the Brogborough Lake gullwatch and then we got a call saying it was heading back this way. I was incredibly lucky to be at the right place to see it... :-)
My MVCP yearlist now stands at 92 (Purple Heron, Whitethroat and Stock Dove added today) plus Water Rail, Cuckoo, Grasshopper Warbler, Lesser Whitethroat and Cetti's heard only)
