Wednesday 28 April
Sounds as if friend Dave Elliott-Binns and his Arboleas Birding Group have had another great day's birding. I especially felt envious with the reports of Purple and Squacco Heron along with Great Spotted Cuckoo. Just goes to show what can happen when the rains cease ad our feathered friends start moving about again..

John stopped at the first elevated viewing platform. Trevor, Juda and I stopped at the second. Not a lot was seen from ours. White-headed Ducks, Common and Red-crested Pochard. Our only addition to the list was a Great Crested Grebe. John had added Black Wheatear and Kingfisher from where he had excellent views of the Whiskered Terns. After we'd left to go home he added White Wagtail and Cetti's Warbler.
