2 Red-legged Partridge on Turnough Hill at the nature reserve today were my first ever here although they do seem to be spreading in the local area - presumably due to released birds

The eclipse drake Gadwall still on the nature reserve and a Ringed Plover were the other highlights. A pair of Whitethroat were carrying food to their nest and a Green Woodpecker was heard calling
