Summer on Jubilee River

Our last visit of June to the site recorded the birds breeding on the banks of the river. Reed Warbler, that only arrived in April and May, were nest sitting while resident species such as Robin already had fledged young.

A female Reed Bunting showed very worn flight feathers – grown last summer – and now after a winter and half-way through raising young, very much in need of a moult to grow a new set.
