COLLEGE LAKE blossoming

At last something to report from College Lake BBOWT and a day that had spring in the air. Lapwing numbers were much higher than usual with C200 all round the reserve, a small number have started to claim territories on both marsh islands. There was a single COMMON SHELDUCK which may be one of the hopefully returning pair. At the north end of the reserve there was a Peacock butterfly. Also on the marsh male and female PINTAIL and on the lake a single female Goldeneye and the Red Crested Pochards (per Paul Reed)
