The lockdown.....

Well this lock down hasnt and isnt really effecting me at, im still working daily although my job has turned cleaner for older person schemes, my local patch is on my daily excersize route and i enjoy the garden birding, so whats changed for me well nowt...

25th March  Buzzard landed in  the garden trees.  Down on the Reserve, Peregrine is back, theirs still 75 White-fronted Geese and a Green Sandpiper flew over towards the wet areas. A Black Redstart appeared on the roof of the prison and 2 Ruff were still onsite.

26th March
50 Fieldfare and 16 Redwing in the field behind the garden.

27th March
Not a lot to talk about patch wise but this Grey Heron had the patience to wait for lunch in the form of a Mole... Going Going Gone.

March 28th a White wagtail added to the garden list as the fields are being ploughed ready for potatoes bringing in lots of gulls and wagtails.
On the patch 35 Avocet, 2 Ruff, 6 Ringed Plover, 7 Chiffchaff, 1 Blackcap. 75 White-fronted geese and 19 Brent Geese.

March 30th
The Geese of Hollesley

Around the corner from home i found a Black Redstart, probably the same bird frequenting Oak Hill rooftops.

A trip up to Hollesley common for a little change had a new variety of bird, Woodlarks a plenty and a couple of Dartford Warblers.

April 2nd
This was a good day around patch with 3 Green Sandpipers. Sorry for poor pics.

First Wheatear of the year and a mix of wagtails including 16 Pied and 12 White Wagtails. A Spoonbill dropped in and showed nicely albeit just before dark.

Onto today
My first Swallow of the year, the peregrine was still in its usual tree. The White-fronted Geese have now all gone. 4 Knot were a patch tick, 8 Avocets, and 2 Brent Geese were the highlights. Took  a couple of shots of the Hares as i waited for something good to turn up. which it didnt.

 Lastly today back in the garden i put the lure out for the Emperor moth, and it worked .......

Cattle Egret at Boyton so maybe ill be able to get that tomorrow on my daily walk.
