Also a very tame Grey Heron in the weir, it wasn't even bothered about dogs splashing around close by. Four Reed Buntings were active around the weir too.

No sign of the Redstart this morning

A pair of Gadwall landed in the juncus ditch by Hawthorn Lane, which was unusual.

I haven't taken advantage of the daily exercise the government has required us to do, so today was the first time for me in almost 3 weeks that I decided to get on my bike & glad I did.
The female redstart showed well & was slightly off my planned route but  made a refreshing change from the usual garden birds, I didn't stay to long as I actually felt uncomfortable & needed to burn of several more calories
Also blackcaps & Chiffchaffs along hawthorn lane.
