Is it Spring yet?
I managed a brief visit to the patch this afternoon, mainly to coincide with the evening Gull roost at Pickerings Pasture. Stopping at Carr Lane Pools the birds were clearly thinking it was Spring with a singing Chiffchaff and displaying Teal. The pools were quiet with only 76 Teal, 7 Redshank, 2 Wigeon and a distinct lack of anything else. I wandered along Town Lane to view Hale Marsh quickly picking up a female Merlin, Sparrowhawk, Kestrel and 5 Buzzard.
