Many birds start singing again in a last flourish before bed while others prepare themselves for a through the night serenade. The Marsh Frogs should be active and there is a chance that our very nocturnal Barn Owls may grace us with a fly past while early emerging bats of several species hawk overhead. The cafe will remain open for hot food, drinks and snacks!
