Ham Wall. 9 species of Ducks including Pintail, Wigeon, Teal and Shoveler.
Black tailed Godwits, Snipe and Lapwing.
Booming bitterns, GW Egrets.
Plenty of song including Willow Warbler, Chiff Chaff, Cettis (one seen) Blackcaps, Blackbird and Song Thrush.
Big flocks of Sand Martins.
At least 10 Redpoll.


Tealham. Singing Skylarks, Reed Bunting and Meadow Pipit, Kestrel on telephone line and the highlight of the morning for me, a pair of Curlew circling and calling loudly below Heath House.
