March 15th (New Hythe)

Nice spring like day,west/northwest.I was hoping to see my first Sand Martins of the spring today but although I visited various lakes both during the morning and afternoon I didn`t have any luck.Instead I had to be content with my first singing Chiffchaff of the spring which was heard this morning within the sunken marsh and a sighting of a second bird in the Hawthorns along the river bank opposite Eccles island.If the wind swings round to the south over the next few days as forecast,who knows what may turn up by the end of the week.
Small numbers of Fieldfare and Redwing continue to be present in the east scrub area.
