Still plenty of water and wildfowl, with added bonus of a Great White Egret fishing the edges of the lake.
A wet and windy day, but spring is not unsprung! Egyptian Goose still on nest, and many other birds battling the weather to prepare for the next generation.
Conditions deteriorated during the morning making recording difficult but not before the Chiffchaff was noted for the second week.
A damp and increasingly windy day, but still plenty to enjoy: another Chiffchaff heralding spring, the Great Egret still loitering around the margins of the lake and Lapwings displaying.
A great day accompanied by GAR who found the good birds - a 2nd Great White Egret, Little Ringed Plover, Jack Snipe & Bittern.
Another lovely day, with plenty to see and hear: more breeding behaviour in evidence and some signs of return passage - first Siskin and Grey Wagtail of the year and a few more Redshank than last week.
Another lovely day brightened up even more by a visit of four Cranes, (a family of three & one other adult, not seen here before).
A much brighter warmer day than last week, with increasing evidence of breeding behaviour: Great Crested Grebe's and other waterfowl displaying; Marsh Harrier 'sky dancing' again; and resident species singing, including Treecreeper and Reed Bunting.
