Sunday 16th April 2017

Highlights this Easter Sunday were 5 Ruff on the NWT pools, a Common Sandpiper around the Broadwater, a Cuckoo briefly on the NOA reserve, 7 Swallows, 6 House Martins, a Cetti's Warbler, a Grasshopper Warbler, 2 Stonechats, 3 Wheatears, 2 Tree Pipits over calling, a male Brambling in the pines and 2 Redpolls noted.

A further hatching of 21 Emperor Moths made up for the shortfall in the traps with only a single Muslin moth caught!
