First trip for a while to Padley but at least 5 males singing and a single female. Males investigating boxes and a bonus Lesser Spotted Woodpecker calling.

Following the arrival of a bird at Orgreave Lakes we decided to go to the new visitors centre at St Aidans to have a walk around the reserve. I didn't realise this was really an extension of Swillington Ings. We saw at least 5 BNG and three birds were really obliging.

A brief early morning visit to the reserve. A little dull so light was challenging but I got some nice reflections on the still water. Hand held but managed to keep the ISO down. Not quite as close or sharp as I would have liked but some reasonable results.
