Pairs were definitely the theme of today's lunchtime visit to Willen North Lake.
Two Little Egrets flew from the spit up to their nest on the island, a couple of Little Ringed Plover ran around the spit and a pair of Shelduck were swimming straight out from the hide.
Pinky Pinkfoot was near the island and 5 Common Tern were present with 2 of them looking like they are setting up home on one of the rafts.
I've still yet to see a Sedge Warbler this year despite several of them singing in the reeds. Other Warblers heard were Chiffchaff, Blackcap and the regular Cetti's.
