Recent Sightings at RSPB Ham Wall 22.03.2013
Although there is a hint of spring on the reserve, it seems the winter is reluctant to release its grip for the moment. It's been a cold and wet couple of days on the reserve and wildlife has seemed more reluctant too to show its face - not surprising (I've felt the same way). There has been...

Recent Sightings at RSPB Ham Wall 22.02.13
Firstly, apologies for the lack of recent sightings blogs for the last 2 Friday's. I was on annual leave last week and the week before I had to stay home and nurse my 2 daughters through chicken pox - mildly bird related I guess but I'm back now and ready to blog away. With all the stories of...

Pied Billed Grebe at Ham Wall
Always nice to report a rarity on site. This bird was first sighted on Ham Wall on Friday 15th in the afternoon from the second viewing platform. It was still there yesterday and has been attracting quite a lot of attention from birders - many whom have travelled considerable distances to see it. ...

Thankfully the snow we had in midweek came to nothing, although the temperature has remained low as I have found out to my cost after slipping in a ditch up to my waist on Wednesday morning and filling my wellingtons with more icy water this morning - I seem to be making a habit of this lately. Thank...

It's been a very snowy day today so was unable to get into work myself what with school closures etc. I also can't be of too much assistance in giving info about the state of the roads close to the reserve but if you are out and about take great care or seek other local knowledge before traveling...

Recent Sightings at RSPB Ham Wall - 07.01.2013
Firstly apologies for the lack of blogs recently. Of course, it was the Christmas break but then I had a bout of sickness which means I have only just returned to work.

Some more great sightings for you this week. The stars of the week turned up yesterday (x2) and more joined them today. This morning 6 Waxwings were present (and still there at lunchtime when I left) in the Alder trees surrounding the car park at Ashcott Corner and also feeding in the small Rowan Tree...

Recent Sightings at RSPB Ham Wall 24.02.2012
Lots going on at the reserve again this week, with plenty of interesting reports and one or two unusual sightings. Bitterns seem to be much more active over the past couple of weeks and there have been plenty of sightings at Ham Wall. The first viewing platform still seems to be the most fruitful...

The Starlings seem to very happy at the far end of Shapwick Heath as they have now settled for their 2nd week. The numbers of birds are still huge and crowds of people who have been coming down to enjoy the spectacle have not been disappointed with their fantastic displays. In fact this week the displays...
