A walk around Willen in the wet

I did a complete circuit of the two lakes at Willen this morning.
Duck numbers are building up with good numbers of Mallard, Wigeon, Teal, Shoveler, Gadwall, Tufted and Pochard. New in were 3 female type Red-crested Pochard on south lake along with the long stayer at north lake.Lots of Great-crested Grebe were present, including a family with four still quite small young.
 Around a hundred House Martins linger over 'The Wayfarer' as well as two juvenile Common Terns on north lake.
 The north lake is now home to a few hundred Coot and a Little Egret patrolled the edge of the island.
