Not a lot of action at the Washes: two Cranes, a busy Common Tern and lots of Swallows and House Martins.  Good company for us with Barry and Sue.

Feeding Station Visitors

Top tit is a Coal, bottom one a Blue, both juvenile.  Second down is a juvenile Blackbird - its parent was not an acrobat when it came to collecting suet, but it gave a clear warning of an approaching Jackdaw.  The pale bird is a young Robin.

Lockdown Eases

Into Cambridge and free parking at the meters on West Road.  A few more shops open, and market food stalls.  Not many people about.

Southern Hawker Emerged

Another one from Ann's pond.  It flew quite quickly in the warm sunshine.

Lackford For The First Time This Year

The hides are still shut, but the toilets were open and a volunteer was present.  We met Sarah for the first time since the lockdown began.
