Lapwing displaying on 100 acre
About 8 singing Reed Warblers around
Still about 3000 gulls around including an Iceland Gull
The good weather continues (although it is rather windy). Had a Red Kite this morning, a few Common Sands about and Steve had a flock of Redshank- so stuff still on the move. 6-8 Sand Martins around the bunker, about 50 Swifts over the lake, a couple of House Martins and still the odd Swallow dripping through. Certainly feels like spring passage is behind us- more juv Starlings and other local birds about including the first Canada Geese chicks. Hoping for a mid summer mega now.
More insects around now too- the first damselflies and more bugs and beetles on the vegetation which is growing up quick.
