The new feeders at the visitor information have been great for close views of nuthatches.

Today's reserve list included: red kite, woodcock, fieldfare and mistle thrush around the wind turbine field, green woodpecker, goldfinches.

Over the last few days we have done a lot of bare ground works, including a new path loop by the natural play area (opening later in the year), and bare sandy patches scraped to provide homes for mining bees and wasps and (hopefully) feeding areas for natterjack toads.
