I had a look at the scrape on Holborough marsh from 1:30pm-2:30 it was nice and warm so quite a few birds were dropping in for a drink.The birds I saw were - Little Egret 1,Grey Heron 1,Lapwing 40+,Green Sandpiper 2,Stock Dove 3,Wood Pigeon 20,Kestral 1,Swallow 2 and Linnet 2.I was very pleased to see the Linnets as they were the first I have seen at Holborough since 2001,the Linnet population crashed there between 1996 and 2001,from ten pairs to one (the habitat stayed the same,it wasn`t just a local decline).
