Sunday March 26

Sunny with a light easterly breeze. Cool.

Dave joined me today, but it turned out to be one of those days where you feel that no matter how much time or effort you invest you just won't find anything new.

The highlight was the continued presence of the Black-tailed Godwit. The flash field also contained two Redshank, three Green Sandpipers, two Shelducks, and 33 Teal.

The only summer visitor present was Chiffchaff, the tally slowly rising to five singing males. Winter was represented by 13 Fieldfares, 20 Starlings, and a Redwing.

The return journey was brightened by a somewhat distant Peregrine, which appeared from photographs to be an immature bird, and therefore different from the adult seen earlier in the year.

We need the wind direction to change.
