Dave's Weekly Round-up...

Thanks again to Dave Helliar for his weekly round-up of birds and insects from the local Chard area. Oystercatcher on his local patch is always a scarce bird and a good find together with some butterflies and other insects that are battling through the currently unseasonally cool weather. Wader movement has been slow but steady with several Common and Green Sandpipers and a single Black-tailed Godwit moving through the area too.

Oystercatcher, scarce inland and always good to see.
