Very early this morning,

First visit very quick visit mind as I was at the gym this morning.

Quite a few firsts this summer for me!

1 Wheatear
2 House Martin
1 Common Sandpiper
1 Swift

Great site, hopefully be able to come properly soon.
Been wanting to come for the last few months but not done no birding with work being so busy!

No problem. At the end of Engine Lane on the left is the biggest pool (with the island) and the others are smaller and dotted about the whole site
