   Yet another trip to Chew today.

   A few extra species today. Ferruginous Duck & 2 drake Ruddy Ducks, some more usual ducks returning too, Wigeon, Teal, Shoveler & Pintail. Waders there too, Ringed Plover, Dunlin & at least 4 Ruff. All distant though.

   A drive along the southern edge of Bladgon lake, didn't produce too much, but the Glossy Ibis was still around.

   Nice day too, so a trip to Priddy pools looked good. Common Hawker was the aim. This time it produced too, good stuff….Also there were some Black Darters still on show. Birdlife is always almost non existent there, but 2 Stonechats and 2 Snipe, which were a first there for me, showed.
