On the 31st July:


Another visit to Frampton, where at the lakes we saw 3 Spotted Flycatchers, 2 Kingfishers, several species of warblers including 5 Lesser Whitethroats, a Cuckoo, a Turtle Dove, lots of Bullfinches, 4 Greenshank, 5 Redshank, 4 Green Sandpipers, 4 Spotted Redshanks and the 2nd summer Little Gull. By the river we saw 5 Greenshanks, 5 Redshanks 4 Common Sandpipers and 200+ Curlew.


A visit to Chew Valley Lake where we saw 2 Oystercatchers, 8 Common Sandpipers, a Green Sandpiper, 2 Ruff, 3 Dunlin and we found a Mole, in the reed-bed, which must have been forced to the surface by resent higher water levels in the lake, a new mammal for us.

From there we went to Cheddar Reservoir, but other than 7 Common Sandpipers there was little else, then to Stock Hill on the Mendips, where we saw 6 Redpolls, 7 Willow Tits, lots of Coal Tits and Goldcrests.
