I'll stab a guess at a half-grown Oystercatcher chick. But could just as easily be a Herring Gull chick.

Marsh Tit, though I think I saw my first Willow Tit there over 35 years ago.

Coal tit it was - although it does look more like a marsh tit now I look at the bad photo!

Off to Ham Walls today - so you never know what might turn up!

Nice. Have a great day Julie. There’s been some Cattle Egrets at Catcott Lows recently.

Hi Rich and all!

No really poor pics - the light was great. Did have 6 sightings of bitterns though! Best pic attached (this time).

Second visit to Ham Walls once again showed an extrodinary number of bittern flying - I saw 6 more! My photo skills also yielded this :)

Perhaps the last one was too tricky!

Try this one - Malvern Hills today - no sign of the choughs btw!
