I only took a few photos and most of them were around the large flash in the middle of the reserve.
There were at least a couple of pairs of great-crested grebes plus some tufted duck (but they stayed too far out of the reach of my zoom).
And lots of these orchids - marsh orchid?
There were also lots of coot families.
I made this short video of the mother calling to them.
In the background of the video, you might have heard another bird. When I looked up this reed warbler was singing away. (Well I think it's a reed warbler)
We did walk around some of the woodland parts of the reserve too but there was nothing really photo-worthy other than a flock of long-tailed tits and a blackcap which was too fast for me.
If only blackcaps were as slow as this snail! I thought it was really unusual with its black body and amber shell.
It's the first time we've visited this reserve but we saw enough to plan to go back at some point and explore some of the other paths. x
