Wednesday 20th April 2016

A glorious sunny day but another cool easterly breeze took the edge off today! Highlights were a Hen Harrier reported past the NWT reserve, 6 Common Cranes seen heading south west over Holme Church, a Turtle Dove calling near Redwell Marsh and a Barn Owl hunting. A Sand Martin, 6 Swallows, 7 Chiffchaffs, 6 Willow Warblers, 2 Lesser Whitethroats, 1 Whitethroat, 10 Sedge Warblers, and over 20 Yellow Wagtails were also seen during the day.
