Back to work

Well, not really, but back to the work-party at Maple Lodge. Everything seems really green and lush, and the reed-bed is really overgrown. They finished off the new walkway whilst we were away.
Not much by way of birds. A few blackcaps eating the berries on Long Hedge, parakeets and a pair of nuthatches visiting the feeders outside clubhouse. Most of the duck still well in eclipse but teal, shoveler, pochard, tufty and mallard all present and a couple of broods of dabchicks.
