Paul Highman led 15 of us around the Nature Reserve on a cold bright calm morning, starting at 6 am.

A total of 30 species were seen/heard, including numerous warblers.

The highlights were a large flock of Sand Martins feeding over the river close to their nesting bank, and a magnificently coloured male Bullfinch in bright sunlight at the top of an ash tree.

Paul's knowledge and expertise was greatly appreciated.



PS: Paul was not able to record the number of each species as he was busy leading the walk. The following were sighted/heard: (Clicking on the species below will get you to the relevant page in our bird register)
