Hello everyone,

We are back with another week of sightings at Frampton Marsh and we have some exciting news to bring you, including increased numbers of summer migrants and nesting birds and a couple of rarities. As usual, Anthony has made these observations whilst on essential visits to the reserve and as a quick reminder, RSPB paths, hides and visitor centres remain closed for the time being. RSPB staff are working hard to agree on local changes on how to reopen reserves. We have national guidelines, but every reserve is different, so there will be bespoke arrangements for every reserve. Now let’s move onto the good stuff...

Here are the latest sightings between 11 - 15 May:

Monday 11:

Gargeney - 2

Peregrine – 1

Common sandpiper – 1

Wednesday 13:

Spotted redshank - 1

Swift – 400

Mediterranean gull - 2

Wood sandpiper – 1

Friday 15:

Turtle dove - 2

Little gull – 1

Spoonbill - 1

Avocet – 115 adults on nest!
