The first of many
With all the dodgy weather about recently, the forecast for this morning looked decent so Georgie and I took the opportunity to get our first survey done.

Weekly wildlife roundup - Like a rubbish dump in India...?
If you have ever been to Asia, you will have probably been past or even birded a local rubbish dump (I kid you not!) and seen large numbers of gulls, storks and raptors feeding on leftovers.

Ray's Rambles: Bats, bitterns and car park dwellers
Our reserve has come up with another 13 species to raise my list total to 899. Four new moths - cream wave , white-line dart , square-spot rustic and frosted orange - came via the moth trap. I have always maintained that not enough attention is paid to the wildlife in the car park, and the last few...

Boom, Boom, Babies
Firstly, some advice...don’t go away on holiday as you are bound to miss something! I have just got back from a 2-week birding trip to the US to find out that there has been an explosion in bittern activity. Just before I left, we had been recording an increase in bittern activity and suspected...
