By the visitor centre in the reeds was a singing Reed Warbler although it never showed itself, plus a Red Crested Pochard and a single Egyptian Goose.
Being a week day visit you also get to see the tugs moving gravel around the sight, much nicer to look at than some lorry.

A bonus bird we did have was a Cetti's Warbler calling and giving brief views just below the tower hide, we found another latter further along the path leading to the river, this showed a little better than the last, plus finally we saw a Reed Warbler hiding in a patch of reeds.
