Carmel and I enjoyed excellent views of the roding WOODCOCK at Ringshall Coppice on Sunday evening. It first appeared over the car park clearing at 9.30pm and then reappeared on its circuit at eight minute intervals. It constituted my first in the immediate area this year.

Otherwise, largely quiet with little activity now at the reservoirs - the odd Little Egret still roosting.
