Old faithful?

Reports of our first great white egret of the summer on Ivy Lake today – unfortunately it was wading and therefore no one was able to see colour rings on its legs and confirm whether it is THE great white, “Walter”.

Other season firsts today, for me at least, common darter dragonfly and brown argus butterfly, whilst opening the hides in the morning was a wildlife extravaganza with fox cub, roe deer, bullfinch and kingfisher all sighted as I nipped around quickly on the bike to be ready for my morning with Hyde Preschool!

Brown Hawker dragonflies all very much in evidence across the reserve now too.
