O.K I admit it's rather later than dawn's early light. So I slept in! I'm on my hols!
And it seems that most everyone else on the pond was weekending and so this late in the summer (and before the leaves change) it's pretty much deserted. All I hear are fish splashing and various as yet unknown birds. All I've actually had time to see yet are a couple of kingfishers and I can hear numberless Jays. Oh yes and I've heard a couple of Loons too from either end of the pond.
