All I recorded was the pair of KESTRELS around their nest box, and two BUZZARDS, one over the Wet Woods, and one over the Greenhouse Copse. A SWALLOW flew around the Greenhouse Grounds, and a CHIFFCHAFF sang in the distance.
Whilst on my walk to work this morning a GREYLAG GOOSE was in the sheep pasture at Migrant Alley, plus a MEADOW PIPIT flew over, this may well be the last of this species until their return passage in Sept. The median last recording date for Meadow Pipit is the 17th April, and the latest date is the 23rd April, which has occurred in 3 years.
I might just get an evening visit in later, but as I write this another shower is falling, so i wont bank on it :-(
Back to some garden bird photo's in the mean time!
