8 Ruff migrating- circled farm before heading on
Little Owl- the regular bird along Commonside- also one heard from the Park
A pair of Teal. Quite a few of the wildfowl are paired up. Still about 60 Teal, 30 Shoveler, 12 Gadwall and the Pintail around.

Nice bit of weather today encouraged more flowering and insect emergence. A group of migrating Ruff was interesting. Also a few Buzzards over the last couple of days heralding the beginning of the spring raptor pasage.
