Dowley Gap - first Sand Martins
Martin Taunton

Stockbridge Reserve (members only) - pair of Goosander with female flying to the Stock Dove Nest Box. Kingfisher, Reed Bunting, Chiff-Chaff, Bullfinch amongst birds recorded. An interesting sight was of 5 Jays chasing each other for most of the morning, often screeching, but one mimicking call of Buzzard.
Left some seed on the stone wall to watch a couple of Bank Voles dash out regularly.
