Stockbridge Reserve (members only) - plenty of birds around the feeders with Bullfinches, Reed Buntings & finches. What was not expected was a Meadow Pipit which perched on the willows for a few minutes. This species has not been recorded at this site for over 10 years. Water Rail very briefly heard.
