Is this actually spring?

Another day of two halves! Out very early this morning in beautiful warm sunshine, lots singing (including my first Willow Warblers), a couple of Common Sandpipers, and a pleasure to be out. Then, the visitors began arriving...

Dogs running about, folk wandering through the middle of nesting Lapwings, low planes, even lower microlites and to cap it all, two escaped ponies apparently heading my way. Fortunately, they were caught before they got here!

So this afternoon was spent putting up a number of signs so that some of the more irresponsible members of our population don't cause too many problems. There also seemed to be a bit of migration going on, with 30+ Sand Martins and 11 Wheatears moving through. Hopefully things are starting to happen. Watch this space!

PS Missed another Osprey yesterday
