Rutland Water

We visited the Lyndon and Eggleton reserves on what was possibly the finest day of the year. The highlights were; two Ospreys, two Garden Warblers, two Whitethroats, four Sedge Warblers, a Greenshank, a Little Gull, an Avocet, nesting Great Crested Grebes, Swallows, Sand Martins and House Martins, Common Terns, Tree Sparrows and lots of Chiffchaffs, Blackcaps and Willow Warblers. We also saw lots of Orange Tips, Peacocks and Small Whites.
