Black-tailed Godwits 15+ birds over the main pool yesterday evening.
Other waders, 3 flyover Whimbrel (taking the Gordano valley route), 38 Redshank and 3 Common Sandpiper in Chapel Pill. A good night for the reserve.
The lovely photo of the water vole above was taken by Adam Flook just before the evening walk. Thanks for kindly sharing it with us.

Evening Walk


                                          1st tufted brood- taken in the sanctuary on June 26th.

We had unusually pleasant weather for an evening walk on the reserve last night. Those who came along were rewarded with stunning views of the barn owls. The little owls were also showing and there was plenty of bat traffic along Wharf Lane.
Many thanks to Gary Thoburn for the fantastic barn owl  photos.
