Sunday April 2

Cloudy at first, then sunny but chilly with a light north-westerly breeze.

A slightly strange start as Dave and I both heard the trill of a Little Grebe near the Dragonfly Ponds, but then failed to locate the bird, which would have been the first ever seen there, despite circling the pools...and no it wasn't a Whimbrel, worse luck.

The only year tick today was a Blackcap singing from the hedge near the beehives. The pool contained two pairs of Tufted Ducks, while the flashes continue to host the Black-tailed Godwit, plus 14 Teal, a few Lapwings, two Redshank, two Shelducks, two Green Sandpipers, and a pair of Little Ringed Plovers.

Time for a token bird photograph.

We also saw plenty of Brown Hares, two Grey Squirrels and a Muntjac.
