Had a stroll round the big concrete basin that is Farmoor Reservoir, I guess it was around mid afternoon time, so not much about hence the poor photos depicting just Cormorant and Common Blue Butterflies. Would have included Dragonflies if only they would have kept still for a short while. Met that Farmoor stalwart the marvellous Dai John who has been on a fat stripping diet and now cuts a slim rugged shape, in fact I wasn't too sure if I was looking at him or his dog Billy but it soon became apparent which was which by who was in charge - yeah! you guessed it the dog was in charge. Dai was with a mate Dave Daniels another Farmoor regular and like Dai, Dave is always a pleasure to meet. As I walked the causeway back to the car park a piping sound alerted me to a Common Sandpiper , no doubt winging in, to spend the night on the reservoir.
