On Thursday 21st Steve had a Herring Gull and on Friday 22nd a Common Tern. Later on Friday evening John was out with our friend Dan and they saw a Willow Tit in the wood and a Common Sandpiper at the reservoir. Up around the Borrow Pit they also saw several Six Spot Burnett moths.

On Saturday 23rd I had a walk up from town through Spiceball Park. There were at least two Reed Warblers still singing in small reedbed in the river and two Kingfishers, one of which was later along the river by the reservoir. There was very little of note around the reservoir and wood, but I was happy to find at least one of the juvenile Sparrohawks still there.
This afternoon Tony Crisp had a Yellow-legged Gull at the reservoir sat on a buoy. It would seem they are well and truly back in the area and hopefully we see more like last year.
