Stockbridge Reserve (members only) - Water Rail feeding close to reeds, Kingfisher, Reed Bunting, Bullfinch. Heard call of Green Woodpecker some way off up the valley. The call became louder & louder until the woodpecker flew over my head immediately followed by a Sparrowhawk. The intended victim found sanctuary in the local gardens.
Sandbeds - on canal bank, Blackcap.
