We then got singing Blackcap and Chiffchaff, and then a Great Spotted Woodpecker. We walked alongside the lake, and heard a Lesser Pecker drumming in the woods. We had no chance of seeing it though because of the foliage, so we had to settle with a heard tick. We then got Little Egret, 3 Tufted Duck, a brief Green Sandpiper and 3 displaying Little Ringed Plover. Great stuff....
But they were distant, and flying very quickly so it was hard to get a decent shot.
We then got a Swallow over before turning back to the van. When we got back to the van, we saw a second Green Sandpiper on a small lake, but after trying to get closer, there was no sign. Nevertheless a great afternoon stroll!
