Yes....the day I have been waiting for! Two Wheatears appeared on my local patch this morning ...Spring really IS on the way but you would hardly think it with the brisk biting North Easterly blowing. A pair of Peregrines sat motionless on new island in the harbour surveying their territory and contemplating their next meal.
A visit to North Wall produced lots of newly arrived Chichaffs actively feeding in the hawthorns plus three Cettis Warblers singing their explosive song from deep within the undergrowth. About 60 Black Tailed Godwits were feeding in a field beyond Breach Pool most of which were changing into sumer plumage. A buzzard sat in the dead pine tree and a Sparrow Hawk flew overhead.
