Review of the Year

So, that's it for 2015 - quite an unremarkable year bird-wise. Highlights were the pair of Grey Herons Ardea cinerea that bred for the first time in many years at Blagdon, the regular sightings of Great White Egrets Ardea alba which seem to be becoming established as a local breeding species, catching our first juvenile ♀ Nathusius' Pipistrelle Pipistrellus nathusii in August, a memorable night in September spent beside the lake photographing the lunar eclipse, and the Temminck's Stint Calidris teminckii found by Ken Hall in October which led us all such a merry dance.
