Belvide Res (permit only)
Bittern left roost at 07:05 and flew towards SE Bay and again at 08:20 in SE Bay near the ringing  station. 8x Waxwing flew over west early afternoon. The partial s/pl Mediterranean Gull was present early morning and again in the roost. Belvide Blog
***A notice to permit holders. Due to the car park gate dropping significantly, we have decided to leave the gate open until it will hopefully be fixed at the weekend. Also a reminder that there is a work party this Sunday. Please meet at the Scott hide at 9.30am if you can spare a few hours.***
