A dry morning with a chilling wind, our party numbered 15 so we split into three groups to ease pressure in the hides.

Between the groups we recorded 56 bird species including two of the less common grebes, Slavonian and Black-necked, plus Egyptian Goose and Ring-billed Gull, all on Ibsley Water; and later Siskin, Lesser Redpoll and most notably Brambling from the woodland hide. In addition some were lucky enough to see a Bank Vole (below)
