Greylag Geese (pic 1) seem to be a feature of early spring at the farm with a few appearing over the last couple of weeks. Most wildfowl numbers are reducing now but Tufted Duck (pic 2) are still present in good numbers (they breed much later than most wildlfowl). The Mute Swans have built a nest on the island.
5-6 Sand Martins around today, with singing Willow Warbler, Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs by the hide. The Tree Sparrows are utilising the new nest boxes by the hide and with a bit of sun and warmth today more bugs were emerging.
