Thursday 26th April

Not one but two trips today, I was over early morning before work but all of last nights good birds had gone. The only bird of note was a Shoveler. In the evening I met up with the Captain and we worked our way around. A south-westerly wind was blowing quite strongly but it was surprisingly cold.

There were still several Common Tern, four Swift, plus a mixture of hirundines mainly Swallow but this time including a few House Martin. The Shoveler was still present as was the Teal. There was very little singing although we picked up a few Blackcap and the occasional Chiffchaff. There were a pair of Nuthatch and probably the best bird of the day a Raven.

This morning (Friday) I had my second sighting of Hobby this week in the Shustoke area along with a couple of Whitethroat.
