A late Short-eared Owl was a nice surprise, as was a lone Whimbrel on the Cam Washes. Very pleased to see at least 12 Lapwing chicks running around the winter flood.
Good weather has brought the summer visitors with it, with growing numbers of warblers setting up territories.
After many sites in the county have had visits of Little Gull this spring we at last had four of these delightful little birds visit us today.
Highlights today were the Garganey, summer plumage Water Pipit on the lake, a singing Whitethroat and 8 shiny Yellow Wags. Still some winter visitors around too.
Not much to report with the persistent cold NE winds meaning only a few migrants arriving. New to me - Swallow, Yellow Wagtail & Garganey.
Highlights today were 2 Bittern running along the lake side, the welcome return of lots of hirundines, a male Garganey, a pair of Little Ringed Plover and the soft song of a Bullfinch.
A quiet day with the highlights, a Great White Egret still, my first Sand Martin of the year and meeting the boss of WWT in the hide and having a chat about birds.
