16th April
Hollesley this evening, 2 Whitethroats including one singing opposite my house on the green, must be fresh in. 2 Ruffwere still on the scrape but little else really. 2 Badgers now and Fox are still coming to the garden feeding station and the addition of some Fallow Deer was a surprise.

Turnstones are regular on the shore now, looking splendid in there summer dress. Swallows are now back too.

Well over 100 Linnet passed over the site in one big group.
