The damp conditions have attracted some interesting birds over the past few days. The highlights have been up to four Garganeys and also a juvenile Wood Sandpiper. The only previous Wood Sandpiper here was a spring one on 29th April 1987 (a year that produced many more records than usual in Glos). Other sightings have included 40 Teal, 100 Lapwing, six Snipe, a Redshank, a Wheatear, ten Yellow Wagtails and singles of Sparrowhawk, Kestrel and Hobby. Not many dragonflies about in the breezy conditions, but there was an obliging male Southern Hawker today.
