I was not feeling too good today with a heavy head cold and sore throat, therefore, this early visit was used to collect as many species as possible whilst on the move.
I did a complete circuit of the site taking in Pine woodland, deciduous and mixed woodland, open grassland, and of course, the two large lakes also.
