A sign of spring?.......

24 Mar - Exceptionally cold weather for March in the last few days, with freezing temperatures and an east wind - despite that, a pair of Garganey found by Nigel Pleass in the CWP today at Shorncote, and seen well by me later by the first hide - with wintering Smew (still on 29/30/44) providing an interesting contrast! Also at Shorncote - 21 Shoveler, 50+ Teal, 3 Little Egrets, a Water Rail calling and a Barn Owl in flight. A few Fieldfares and Redwings also in evidence.
