It took a while for me to register that the persistent call I was hearing was from juvenile Sparrowhawk!
I was also very impressed at Ray’s pishing technique – we were standing next to the only large clump of reeds on the bank of the canal and immediately a family of Reed Warblers appeared!

After the survey, David Cottridge took us to see a Wasp Spider he had found. Chamara Sugathsiri took these excellent photos. It’s pretty obvious where its name came from! See the zigzag design in its web – apparently that is a distinguishing feature.
