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. ...

Recent Sightings at RSPB Ham Wall 01.02.2013
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...

Recent Sightings at RSPB Ham Wall 25.01.2013
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...

Recent Sightings at RSPB Ham Wall 18.01.2013
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. This means there is plenty to catch up with and I have done my best to gleen information from wherever possible - thanks to John Crispin...

Recent Sightings at RSPB Ham Wall 21.12.2012
Well, as suggested by some, the world didn't end today and the reserve is indeed full of life. A visit out this very morning proved highly productive with a host of species on show. The female Smew is still present from the 1st platform but often swims down the channels and is hidden from view. Today...

Recent Sightings at RSPB Ham Wall 14.12.2012
As I write this the rain is lashing down again at Ham Wall, although the rest of the week has been pretty good, albeit a little chilly. Much of the water on the reserve has been covered with a sheet of ice this week but the wildlife is coping well at present. The evening sunsets have been particularly...
