Weather: W force 1
A hangover from winter today when 2 Fieldfares were noted, but also plenty of signs of spring. A small passage of a few dozen Meadow Pipits prompted a Merlin to stay about in the area. Pied Wagtails were also moving as were several Pied Wagtails and 8 Goldfinches. Linnets (42) were in good numbers and 3 Goldcrests made it to the island. Dunnocks and Wrens were singing, Rock Pipits, Meadow Pipits and Linnets displaying and Blackbird carrying nest material. Waders of note included 6 Bar-tailed Godwits, 1,800 Knot and 4 Purple Sandpipers. What could be more spring-like than a group of flowering Daffodils?
