Wintersett 15.06.17

17 - 24 degrees with scattered cloud and a light south westerly.
Wintersett Res: Herring Gull 8.  Greylag Goose 3.  Common Tern 2 + 3 ACP.   Mallard 5 young.
Anglers CP: Wigeon 1 female.  Pink-footed Goose 1.   A bit of Autumn movement  with 4 Curlews west at 17.00hrs.   The mink was on the right hand island in front of the hide.  It swam across to the bank and, presumably, made its way southwards along the edge, because the Oystercatchers feeding in the area didn't alarm call.
Lepidoptera: The first Ringlet was flying in the Millenium Copse behind the hide.
