Saturday 25th February

Got over early this morning, and it was a bright spring like day. There were a few wildfowl for once with three Shoveler, nine Gadwall, c.30 Pochard and 18 Wigeon. The resident passerines were getting frisky with lots of birds singing with several Song Thrush amongst them. The drainage ditch from the Water Treatment Site to the river was proving attractive to thrushes with lots of Redwing and Blackbirds.

At the other end of the site there was a noisy dispute between two pairs of Mistle Thrush. Warbler corner is a lot brighter now with the largest of the trees gone and there were a pair of Nuthatch and Treecreeper seen. Hopefully with the lighter nights I might get over a bit more often.
