What a scorcher of a week and probably a welcome relief for some of the birds and indeed visitors on the reserve.

Hi All, well it's been another pretty miserable week as far as the weather goes but it's not been an uneventful week on the reserve. There are plenty of warblers out on the reserve to keep people occupied, with as usual, the railway path tree line proving very fruitful, with a good number of...

It's been a very misty week in general on the Avalon Marshes and this has meant a slightly cooler week too, but this has not dampened the spirits of our breeding birds.

There have been some beautiful days on the reserve this week, although there has been a cold wind at times. Spring is slowly creeping it's way upon us, but as yet, I cannot report the first Sand Martins (usually the first to arrive) or Swallows of spring at Ham Wall. The odd one or two have been...
