16th April

Despite the sunshine it has been a really cold weekend so not surprisingly migration has slowed to a trickle. My only new bird for the year was a single, rather distant, Wheatear in the Bottom Fields today…

And although there are now three Willow Warblers singing in the Magic Garden…

(along with two Blackcaps) Swallows remain distinctly scarce throughout the parish.

In the brief warm spell yesterday afternoon I found my first Small white butterfly for the year and my first Peacocks..

Slim pickings for a long weekend in April!
