15th May

A day off today so walked on the south side of the parish and up along the river in the optimistic hope of scarce migrants. Those hopes were dashed! Nonetheless a decent 60 species seen. Undoubted highlight was a Cuckoo, first I've had in the parish for almost ten years. Also saw my first Garden Warbler of the year.

Other sightings included two Kingfishers, a tight 'kettle' of six Buzzards, 25 Goosander including a bachelor party(?) of 15 drakes, four pairs of Oycs, three pairs of Yellow Wagtail...

...and a heartening nine singing Corn Buntings.

Excellent numbers of hares too....
