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 15.03.2013
The last 2 days have been a bit of a contrast here at Ham Wall. A very cold start yesterday led to a gloriously sunny day and today the slightly warmer start has lead to some miserable and wet conditions this afternoon. It looks like they chose the right day to undertake the Bittern survey yesterday...

The drier weather has continued this week and this has been a great help to staff in lowering water levels around the site to get them at the optimum level for our breeding birds. Fairly large numbers of visitors have continued to flow through the reserve this week in search of the Pied Billed Grebe...

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. ...

It's been a relatively dry week for a change in comparison to many we've had recently, although water levels locally are still high with the last of the snow melt and a few deluges adding to the problems. We have been able to operate our pump for much of the week and are beginning to make some...
