Round th Power Station were 1 Black Redstart, 15 Chiffchaffs and 10+ Song Thrushes. On the perimeter wall was a gorgeous Hummingbird Hawk Moth.

Also present was a Little Stint, 8 Dunlin, a Common Tern and a Little Egret. At the back of the pit were 2 hunting Marsh Harriers and 2 Common Buzzards soaring over Lade.
