Let the spring fun begin!

The other thing to get excited about (apart from Eurovision of course) is it's British Summer Time! It's lovely weather out there, so of course I'm typing on the computer!

But anyway, all I've birded this weekend is Uttoxeter Quarry. Once the fog lifted yesterday the first 3 Sand Martins of the year passed through to the north. 7 Chiffchaffs around, plenty of those back in force. Also 1 Fieldfare, 15 Goosander, 4 Goldeneye, 4 Wigeon, 8 Teal, 2 Shelduck, 1 Green Sand, 1 Redshank, 1 Curlew and 2 Ravens over.

And not a lot of difference today really. No LRP's back yet, at the moment they seem to be a bit thin on the ground. It's early days of course, hopefully it's due to the weather and not a rough time in wintering grounds.
