At Foxcote Reservoir at about 2 pm: drake NORTHERN PINTAIL on the dam, drake drake RING-NECKED DUCK put in a brief apperance on the far side of the reservoir opposite the hide.

At Calvert BBOWT: CETTI'S WARBLER showing well in reeds to right of first hide. Water Rail strolled across in front of hide. BITTERN in left hand reed bed having a dull yellow bill, clambered up the reeds; 2nd BITTERN showing well at edge of right hand reed bed having a greenish tinged bill. It then strolled steadily across in front of hide in view for about 15 mins in total giving some excellent views. A reasonable gull roost eventually built up but no wihite-winged gulls noted (Ken Earnshaw)
