My first visit post Lockdown to Radipole lake. Weymouth.
Having visited Lodmoor, I moved on to Radipole Lake. This was perhaps the more interesting of the two visits on the same day.
Marsh Marigolds were in full bloom.
The usual small groups of Tufted Duck could be found around the lake.
A female Tufti having a stretch.
In keeping with my observations on recent Lockdown walks, I found considerable number of Chiffchaff, observed mostly catching flies in willow trees.
It was good to see the emergence of the Peacock Butterfly recently and I found a few at Radipole.
Unfortunately a brief sighting only of this male Blackcap as it disappeared into a bush.
Sand Martins were observed flying low over the water catching flies.
Woodies are chasing each other around now for obvious reasons.
