|Cracking male Wheatear - welcome back!|
The past week has seen some interest on the Reserve, with a ('the'?) King Eider reported on the estuary on Monday and Tuesday, and an Iceland Gull also there on Monday. A second-year Med Gull was at the ternery on Thursday with swelling numbers of Sandwich Terns, and best of all, a fine male Goshawk passed north on Friday (the latter a patch tick for me, and my first since the Brown Shrike back in 2013!).
Otherwise spring seems to have been slow springing on the patch, with just a handful of Goldcrests passing through the High Town so far. Bring on the warblers and hirundines!
