Wheatear: I took a quick trip after work on Monday to Burton Point with the hope to see the Little Owls, which have successfully bread down there and alas the weather turned the rain came and the owls where gone, probably hidden from view.

But I did see 4 Wheatear happily sitting on the fence around the cattle grid and sheep pens which brightened my day a little.

Another great week at the RSPBs Burton Mere Wetlands Reserve and the highlight for me was definitely the Common Lizard and the Merlin. The Marsh Harriers where out daily and a pectoral Sandpiper gave a good show on Friday and the same waders and wildfowl are growing in numbers.
