Monday 4th April

With a bit of free time I spent the morning at the Reservoir. It was dull on arrival but thankfully dry. There were c.40 Sand Martin and several Swallows, as with the other day there were a few Chiffchaff singing at various localities. I also had a pair of Siskin displaying, I will watch that one with interest.

This evening I bumped into Steve Pick who had seen a Tern at the far end, as expected it was a Common Tern, Joy and I continued to walk around adding Brambling which was my first of the year.

Last week Steve Cawthray had both Merlin and Red Kite at the reservoir. Red Kite is a bird that I really want to catch up with as I have yet to see one here.
