More Black-winged Stilts for Somerset!

After a general influx of stilts last year it was great to hear that two had been found at Ham Wall RSPB reserve on the Somerset levels again on Saturday. Couldn't make it out to see them myself but DH and AG managed to see them before heading down to Yarner Wood in Devon with the hope of summer arrivals high on their agenda...

Black-winged stilt, Ham Wall: D. Helliar

Black-winged stilt: D. Helliar
Unfortunately the unseasonably cold weather meant that Yarner Wood wasn't quite as good as should be this time of year with only a handful of Pied Flycatchers of note.

Mandarin drake, Yarner Wood: A. Grinter
Slow worm: A. Grinter

Nuthatch with food: A. Grinter
