After all the headlines in the media this week about Buzzards and its happy outcome (for now at least) thought we should celebrate with a couple of Buzzard pictures to get us started. Of course buzzards can be seen every day at Ham Wall almost without exception, often in pairs or larger groups...

Well it's still raining most days and it must be having a bit of an effect on some of our breeding birds, but hopefully it will ease off and get back to normal (although in May that normally means some rain anyway). Bitterns are still booming however undeterred and some sightings have been seen...
