Saturday 14th March

I spent the day at Draycote Water yesterday seeing my target Iceland Gull (2) and Glaucous Gull all adults. It was a good day and we followed our usual routine of walking around twice. I though there would be a good chance of Wheatear or Sand Martin but saw neither, there were however around 6 Chiffchaff.

I received a text whilst there to say there were around a dozen Sand Martin and a Stonechat at Shustoke – typical.

Anyway, this morning I took a walk around the reservoir, the two Oystercatcher where present but took flight as the activity started at the sailing club. Over the water there were around 25 to 30 Sand Martin and I saw a couple of Chiffchaff – so it is official – Spring is here.
