A round up of the week from Appleton Reservoir

Bird numbers are starting to grow at the reservoir, with around 14 gadwall, 30 tufted ducks, 80 coot and now seven little grebes (five adults and two juveniles). Dragonflies are still out in good numbers, with four or five ruddy darters seen on each visit and similar numbers of common darters. Two or three Emperors were seen, at least two brown hawkers and one migrant hawker. Butterflies include small copper.
