Black-tailed godwit, common sandpiper and avocet were on the deeps at Farlington Marshes on 29th as well as the first returning wigeon of the autumn near the information hut.   (See home page re access to the reserve)

peregrines were seen for the first time for some months on the spire of St Jude's church at Southsea on 30th & 31st.  (G Spencer)

A dozen house martins were in a new area of Bedhampton on 30th - possibly therefore migrating birds.  (J Badnell)

The Trust walk to see broad-leaved helleborines on the track next to Hazleton Common found them but only around a dozen plants and only one of them with flowers.  Probably due to the dryness and early flowering.  Dwarf gorse on the reserve was nice. (JG)
