    First bit of audible bittern spluttering this morning. It’ll be interesting to see / hear how many males are on site this year as they tune-up and start booming.
    Bearded tits are still visiting grit trays while small numbers of redpoll can be found in the siskin flock along Lower path. Stock doves are signing in the garden and otters are being seen daily.
    Lots of snipe visible from most hides.
