This is going to be a little different I am starting this thread off with pictures taken today and working backwards just to be different :)
Some Bar-tailed-Godwits and Redshanks down at the salt marsh this morning.
Got these wrong they are Black-tailed-Godwits not Bar-tailed-Godwits
Green and Redshank
Got this Bank Vole on the reserve.
Lovely pics James, the bar- tailed Godwit has nice markings, love the bank vole and the Nuthatch too coming so close to you. I have seen plenty of butterflies this year but no Holly Blue, and good to see the video of the crow and youngster, it is amazing how they know to fly up and drop the shellfish for a good meal.
Got this but it was fast and never came close to get a good picture.
I can't decide if that Marsh Tit is a youngster, as it's one of the few in perfect plumage :)
She will have to go :)

Very nice photo update Jim
Lovely additions Jim
Not in order of the day but the first ones were taken at the dipping pond and then on the way to Lower Hide.
Young GBBG and Greenshank on the island.
Never seen a Heron crouching down but it was very hot that day.
Five Little and one Great Egret at Lower Hide.
Common Darter Nige :)
Sorry missed your post Nige, I thought the same about the Wren, and a Common will do just because I got a picture and I have another but this one is better it even landed on my head but took off before i could get my phone out :)
They are very smart Hazel, and yes I will see you and Mike on the 12th lets hope we have a nice couple of days ;)
And I have all Wednesday pictures ready only taken a day to get through them :)
A great series, Jim. I particularly liked the little Wren.
I think your dragon might be a Common Darter rather than a Ruddy. Commons tend to have that yellowish stripe on the thorax, while Ruddy's are red and brown
