This Orange-tip at Coombe Hill canal was my first of the year (above). Birds along the canal and from Grundon Hide included the Brent Goose (still), a White Wagtail, 5 pied Wagtails, two Willow Warblers, two Chiffchaffs, a Blackcap, a pair of reed Buntings, two Sand Martins, two Swallows, a pair of Gadwall, three Shoveler, two Oystercatchers, 12 Shelduck and four Greylags.

Hi Neil, not sure if I can help; I did see on their website that Cheltenham Bird Club "will be leading a Dawn Chorus meeting on April 25th on behalf of the Cleeve Common Conservators. More details in the local press or from the Bird Club field meetings secretary on 01594 544042."
