Morning Trevor, 

1 Swift over the pool this a.m. amongst the other hirundines, 1 Reed warbler ( heard), Blackcap, Willow warbler, Chiffchaff and 2 Water Rail. Also 1 male Reed bunting.

Report John Rance.

Thank you for the report John. I have never seen a Water Rail at PBP. Never heard one either !!!!

 Went to Spit this morning but it was too cold to do anything but shiver - a Gannet came close in-shore but camera not ready.

Par Beach Pool around 2.00 - A very aggressive Mute Swan, caused quite a stir. Nice picture of a Heron flying away.

Thank you for the report and photographs Andy.

Hi Trevor,
Another miserable afternoon but Sid Cole spotted this Green Sandpiper on Par Beach Pool. Is this a first for the pool?
Best Wishes
Nigel Climpson

Nice photographs Nigel. I cannot recall  ever seeing a report of one at PBP but I could be mistaken. 
Anyone out there who can remember seeing one before at Par ...please let us know.
