|Chinese Water Deer|
My plan was to wait inside the Fen Hide for a couple of hours. But before that, I had a look outside the Reception Hide. A Chinese water deer was feeding at the edge of the reedbed closest to the hide and Cobber the black swan was busy preening himself. As I made my way to Fen Hide, chiffchaffs, willow warblers and blackcaps were singing proudly. The remaining tawny miner bees were still making burrows next to the bench at the start of the Sandy Wall path.
