Got the bus to the information centre then set of on a walk that I have done many times take the path down to the sewage farm not a lot to see then the footpath behind the sewage farm a few Yellow Hammers / Linnets / Corn Bunting then took the path across the fields but come to a halt as some of the footpaths are closed due to the work going on at the new reserve so ended up doing a circle walk back to the information stopped off at the hide to have lunch just as I was leaving the Pec Sand dropped in for a few minutes then flew off towards the harbour I then continued along the old tram way back to the centre had a Clouded Yellow Butterfly but no pic plenty of Gatekeepers and Large Whites so back to the bus and the journey back to the caravan
