Visited this reserve in the hope of seeing a Green Winged Teal for the first time and we were not disappointed getting good views through the scope of the bird in the far corner of Island Mere from the Turret Hide. Watched the bird for a good time while it was swimming with Teal. No pictures at the distance but nice to see and to get a lifer and year tick.
The pictures of the Cormorant and Oystercatchers was typical of the view from the South Hide.
Managed some shots of Great Tit's close to the feeding station.
On the journey to North Cave we went on the road between Water and Nunburnholme to view some Red Kites. Immediately on stopping outside Warter there was Red Kites overhead, probably saw 5 or 6 altogether.
Also spotted a Little Owl in a tree just outside Warter.
