A short lunchtime visit to Bothal Pond had these nice 4 Black tailed Godwits feeding along the west shore. They were quite flighty and did a few laps around at the slightest disturbance.
These will be the birds reported on ST's blog at Linton yesterday. Also here were 2 Barnacle Geese and a very vocal Great crested Grebe. Quite a few Sand Martins but still no Swallows.
At Earth Balance, Stakeford, my first Willow Warbler of the year was singing from the tree tops near the fishing hut.
At Boulmer, last night, 2 male Wheatears were at Seaton Point. There seems to be a hint of east in the wind this evening. It could drop something in...
