Speaking of luck, I popped into the reserve itself to look for the Kingfishers that have started to make nest holes at one of the hides. Although they were not showing while I was there, a Raven did and it was being mobbed by Carrion Crows and Lapwings. It occasionally took flight and its wing span was incredible. You could never mistake a Raven in flight. There were also a couple of Little Egrets, a Grey Heron and a few lingering Wigeon on the reserve. Two hours well spent.
