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.
50 Fieldfare and 16 Redwing in the field behind the garden.
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.
The Geese of Hollesley
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.
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.
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.
