Spring in Manton Bay

It has been a beautiful spring day at Rutland Water today; Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs are in full voice around the reserve and the first Brimstones have made an appearance.

The unringed female has again spent all day with 5R in Manton Bay, providing fantastic views for several hundred visitors to the Lyndon reserve. 5R returned with a fish just after 10am and after tucking into the head, he took the remainder to the female fifteen minutes later. Since then, the birds have been seen copulating throughout the afternoon.

Still no sign of 32 on Lagoon 4 though.
