Monday 4th April

It was cold and blustery, more like a day in October than Spring but I braved the elements and walked around both pools. Sand Martin numbered around 100 with around 6 Swallow but apart from 4 Chiffchaff and a single Blackcap all was quiet on the migrant front.

The recently sown field next to the paddocks held 20 Chaffinch, 12 Greenfinch but no Brambling. Three Shoveler dropped in briefly but didn’t stay. We just need a change in the weather and birds should start to pour through.
