Wintersett 05.06.16

Crazy weather. 9 degrees with 8/8 cloud and a cool northerly until mid morning.  Then the sun broke through and the temperature rocketed to 20 degrees with a light south easterly.
Wintersett Res:  The highlight today was a new species for this area. - a male RED-EYED DAMSELFLY,  found by Pete Smith on the NE bank, on Amphibious Bistort,  Persicaria amphibia
5 Common Terns were feeding here and then over Anglers CP.   3 male Cetti's Warblers + 1 CHRes.  Unusual behaviour?  The north bank male Cetti's Warbler was seen with a beak full of food for young, while still singing very quietly.
Anglers CP:  Oystercatcher young 2 x 2. 
Lepidoptera and Odonata: 
Disposal Point - Dingy Skipper 3,  Common Blue 1,  Small Heath 1
Moorhouse Lane Ponds: Large Red Damselfly,  Orange Tip 1m.
WRes:  Chimmney Sweeper 1 on north bank.   Blue-tailed Damselfly on west bank.
