Yesterday was taken up with a conservation work-party in the village – some really good work done by everyone! This morning I yielded to the temptation of a local ‘twitch’ to Gun Hill to see an Isabelline Wheatear – a rare visitor from Eastern Europe and Asia. For more details follow this link.

However, I did get round the park this evening but, having reached the far end of the lake, the heavens opened and I got rather wet on the journey home. The most notable bird interest was the group of ten Teal, including two males on the lake, and the Kingfisher, watched hovering above the lake before plunging in to catch a small fish.
