At around 10.30 this morning 6 Blackwits, 3 Greenshank and one Ruff were visible from VP1 in Ham Wall.

To add to Geoffs list there was a single Black Tern at Ham Wall, hawking insects with BH Gulls over Godwins, and another doing likewise at Noahs Lake Shapwick, but both were very distant. There was a report of a Little Stint with Godwits viewable from VP 1 at Ham Wall on Wednesday but I didn’t see it.

Tealham Moor - 3 Yellow Wagtails - no sign of any SEO’s on a windy day
Catcott Lows - 41 Blackwits & 1 Greenshank
Westhay Moor - 1 Black Tern which flew over North Hide - at least 3 Hobbies and a Cuckoo. Also a Chiffchaff calling from the path to the Tower Hide with an aberrant song which went something like “dee doo dee doo tchiff tchaff ....................etc!
North Chine Drove - just 5 Cattle Egrets
Walton Heath as viewed from Durstons Peat Works - at least 8 Hobbies giving the hirundines & Swifts a hard time!
