Late winter

Certainly a feel of change in the air. An influx of thrushes today, high flying gulls presumably migrating, lots of birds singing, Lapwing taking up territories and a few bees buzzing around. 2 Water Pipits, 3 Curlew, Lapwing, 15 Snipe, 5 Green Sandpiper and 40+ Teal on 100 acre. 60+ Shoveler, 30+ Gadwall and 20+ Teal on Southern Lake and a 1st winter and a 2nd winter Iceland Gull on the main lake.

Second-winter Iceland Gull (bird No. 6 known as Daz (whiter than whitest)
Three Curlew- these birds have been present for over 3 weeks
A noteable influx of Fieldfare (200+) and Redwing (30+) on the Horse Field today.
Hebrew Character?- a few moths in the trap last night
Pale Brindled Beauty
