Some flowers and floating leaves have appeared on the Water Crowfoot at Saxon Pond making my original identification wrong. It is now probably Brackish Water Crowfoot but may be Pond Water Crowfoot and without a seed I cannot be sure even after trying 3 different books.
The water level has risen a lot after this weeks rain, so we finished the job just in time. Still plenty of dragonflies, swallows and house martins today.
Walking home I saw a flock of around 50 goldfinches along the “Bon Jovi” path many of which were juveniles and a male peregrine and a raven having a ding dong above the Quarry.
