Spring Trickle


A few migrants today at the farmlands- 1 Common Buzzard (above), Yellow Wagtail, a few hirundines, LRP and still one Green Sandpiper around. Also quite a few Lesser Black Backed Gulls about which have been staging in numbers recently. Derek had the first Reed Warbler of the year.

The wind is a bit cold so not many insects out. The frontal conditions are still due tomorrow but the wind is cold so not sure what affect it will have- I am down grading my forecast of birds (from below) but still expect something of interest.

As usual all bird news from Beddington Farmlands here
