Monday 3rd April

The long overdue first Hooded Crow for the Warren flew over Greenland Lake mid morning, but otherwise there was not much to report on a low high tide; with five Chiffchaff, two Willow Warbler and a Blackcap singing in wooded areas.

Wildlife News: A second highlight was a new nationally scarce beetle for the Recording Area, the distinctive ground beetle Panagaeus bipustulatus. Other beetles included a Pointed-keeled Rhyzobius R. litura and a water scavenger beetle, Helophorus brevipalpis.

Despite the seemingly ideal conditions no butterflies recorded, but a couple of Hairy-legged Flower Bee were nectaring on the crazy golf Rosemary and two Common Lizard ventured out for the first time this year.
