Thursday 9th March

A glorious spring day but still no sign of the first summer migrant, however resident breeding species were in full song with Stonechat, Cirl Bunting and Linnet all to found around the remaining scrub, with both Green and Great-spotted Woodpecker also on site. Elsewhere a Red-throated Diver was offshore, two Slavonian Grebe were off Cockwood, three Shoveler were on the Main Pond  and two Jackdaw were overhead.

Wildlife News: The warm weather brought out good numbers of early insects with a Brimstone a good patch record, also the first Comma and Honey Bee of the year.
