A walk around Stanpit was noteworthy mainly for the Sandmartin activity. However, we also had our first good sighting of a Reed Warbler (too quick for the camera though), and some rather nice family views, both of the Mallards and of this Swan and cygnets.

During two outings to the New Forest later in the month we saw our first Bullfinch, Turtle Dove and Redstart. The 'seen but not snapped' list continues to grow!
