March 30th

Two site year ticks this morning; the first being a pair of Shelduck at the western end, which were present early morning before being flushed by a dog walker and heading off towards Ladywalk. The second came in the form of the first returning Blackcap of the year, a male singing along the streamline. A notable passage was taking place with 5 Swallow, 10 Sand Martin, 15 Meadow pipit and a mixed flock of 35 Fieldfare and Redwing all heading north. Only the second Oystercatcher of the year flew east mid morning and possibly came down on the small pool. Friday's pair of Gadwall had moved to the main pool and a Tree Sparrow was again present.
