Sightings: The Tree Pipit must have been called in by the audio and was on the ground just to the east of the enclosure when we disturbed it on a walk-round, unfortunate. No big gulls today and few butterflies. Ian briefly saw a large dragonfly, but we could not find it to ID it; not many dragon and damselflies seen on the wing here so far this season
