Saturday 21st May 2016


Hard graft this morning. Worth a mention were northbound 6 Barnacle Geese and southbound 11 House Martin, 10 Swallow, 8 Oyks, 6 Swift & 5 Shelduck. On site 3 Skylark is a notable count for this time of the year with 2 Jackdaw paying a brief visit and the Turtle Dove, Wheatear plus at least one Chiffchaff still with us.

A couple of Poplar Hawk-moths were the first of their kind noted this spring.

No birds ringed is indicative of the lack of migrants plus the paucity in the breeding success of local resident species so far this year.
