March 31st

The top field produced yet another male Wheatear this morning, although this individual did not linger. The bird was seen at 9:45 on the telegraph wire above the field before flying off north over the main pool, it circled the horse paddock to the north briefly and may have dropped down on the other side of the road. Yesterdays Blackcap was joined by another singing male. An Oystercatcher flew west early morning before flying back east 20 mins later. A Reed Bunting singing along the streamline was notable, as records of this species on site are surprisingly sparse. Other species noted included 2 Gadwall, 6 Chiffchaff, 2 Treecreeper, 7 RL Partridge and 3 Sand Martin.
