Wednesday April 8

A quick dash down after work on a gloriously sunny evening was, if I'm honest, a bit disappointing.

The flash again contained two Green Sandpipers, a Redshank, and about eight Lapwings, although Teal numbers have risen to 30. The pool contained six Tufted Ducks.

The only point of interest was the presence of a pair of Wheatears in the field behind the pool.

Oh well.

  1. Hi Richard - saw first swallow swooping over Netherstead Court on Wednesday. Good to have them home.

  2. Hi Sue

    Its great to have them back. I heard a Willow Warbler in Redditch on Friday morning, so spring is definitely on the way. I will be back on the patch on Sunday
