Mark  -    I had another look this morning.  If you put in 20 mins looking over rail (west side) of that first bridge, I think you would be sure of brief or partial glimpses of the Baillons as they clamber over and through the Juncus (eg the below).   That plant has got quite dense and lank and it is not as good a viewing possie as it was.  There are also at least 2 Spotless in there that are rather warier.  I saw one on 2 separate occasions scurrying for cover across the small open patch where you look straight down on the VB can.  They make quite a loud ‘chip, chip’ when disturbed.    G
