4th to 13th April

 4th April

Its been cold but for some strange reason i thought id get the Emperor moth lure out in the garden, wasn't expecting anything but low and behold an hour later this beautiful male came to the lure. 

A male Blackcap also visited the garden but that was about it.

5th April 

Hollesley RSPB Jack snipe from River wall  the 2 juvenile Whitefronts were still with the single Pinkfoot. 60 Avocet were the biggest count this year. Little owl in its usual tree. 2 Med Gulls flew over. 

7th April
Visited Boyton RSPB after work where we could hear a Bittern Booming.

8th April
Hollesley. The birds were pretty much the same with Whitefronts and Pinks still, although new in were 2 Yellow Wagtails and a Little Ringed Plover.

Had the afternoon at Ramsholt flash, a few nice Great Crested Grebes and plenty of Pochard.

April 9th 
Hollesley sedge warbler from screen. Little Ringed Plover and Jack snipe still but not easy to find from sea wall. Yellow Wagtail White Wagtail, Sand Martin and Swallow, 2 White-fronted geese still and the Pinkfoot.

April 11th
Black Redstart again in the same field as the Little owl and same place as the 2 from a few days ago.

Walked the river bank to Boyton, usual geese still, now as suspected 2 Jack Snipe one close and one further away. 
At Boyton now 6 Pink footed geese but little else.

Cold but theirs still a very small movement of migrants. Bigish flock of Sand Martins and Swallows. 2 Swallows sat for a small amount of time. 

13th April 
A couple of Avocets one rung locally on patch now 10years old. 12 Mallard ducklings and a local Lesser Blacked Backed Gull rung also locally and 8 years old. 

Thats about it for now.
