A pleasant 60 minutes stroll this morning.
1 lesser whitethroat visible on the top path. 2 linnets were also here.
1 willow warbler singing closeby and several common whitethroats.
1 sedge warbler carrying food and another calling near Darter pool. A male reed bunting was also singing here.
A green sandpiper at Wildfowlers is probably the first sign of return passage in the parish. A black tailed godwit, redshank and lrp were also present here.
A moorhen and 3 chicks at Freemans pools.
Thankfully we don't have any lesser bbg's predating lapwing chicks. I saw at least 4 in the maize fields on Wednesday afternoon but these seem to have disappeared by today. They are usually pretty mobile so hopefully they have moved to the field margins.
Retrospectively, I wished I'd checked Freemans wood. It's usually pretty good in windy but bright conditions.
