Tuesday 26th July 2016

Highlights bird wise today included a Green Sandpiper on the Broadwater, a Turtle Dove singing in the pines on the western edge of the reserve and a showy Tawny Owl that sat in full view mid morning enjoying the morning sun. The moth trap again proved productive with over 60 species caught.
