This weekend

 Juvenile/first-winter Iceland Gull- the same bird that has been present since December and has been seen on the Thames and Walton Reservoirs.  
 Buzzard over the Gun Site. This bird has set up a territory in this area.
 Great Spotted Woodpecker. No sign of the Lesser Spotted in the oak wood but a couple of Greens. 
The removal of 100 acre and Irrigation Bridge concluded today. The only access points now to the farmlands from the west are the Gun Site bridge and Mile Road Bridge. A long distance between the bridges  (I took this photo by standing on the Gun Site Bridge and looking towards Mile Road Bridge which you just about see in the distance) which will not assist encouraging public access. Hopefully a replacement bridge will be forthcoming.
