Rutland Water on 21st June 2009

I went to Rutland Water Lyndon Reserve as part of my duties as a volunteer on the Osprey Project. It was a relatively quiet day for birds - even for Ospreys (unusually). However, on checking-in at the Visitor Centre, the nesting Kestrels were active, and a juvenile male Great Spotted Woodpecker was busy at the nut feeder outside. On the way down to the hide there were Small Tortoiseshell butterflies, and Swallows and House Martins on the wires.

I'm pleased to report that the anonymous spam problem seems to be solvable without using word verification. I'm now just using the 'Registered Users - includes OpenID' option in Blogger settings, and I'm not getting any spam - touch wood! I've also not received any contact from people saying that they are no longer able to make comments.
