Back to Argal and College (3rd May)

Went down to College and Argal Reservoir with a friend to check the camera traps.  Not a great deal of birds but we spent some time enjoying the commoner species, including a single Whitethroat, Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs.  Swallows were also hawking over the reservoir and a pair of Great Crested Grebes were nest building in the southern corner of the reservoir.  Unfortunately, the camera traps only produced a Woodpigeon, a rather bedraggled Fox and a flypast bat.  We were also lucky in finding 3 piles of Otter spraint, a first for me!

Otter Spraint

 pellet from unknown predator.  Maybe owl sp. but seems a bit too small
