A nice spring-like morning,surely I would hear the first Chiffchaff,but it wasn`t to be.

The Little Egret was still present,as mobile as ever,first being seen in the Southern Field and then later in the Northern.Five Shelduck (4) Redshank (8) Mallard (6) Teal (2) Greylag and (1) CURLEW (46) were seen along the river and in the reed bed (3) Bearded Tit (4) Water Rail (8) Reed Buntings and (3) Cetti`s Warblers (47) were either heard or seen.Three BULLFINCH (48) showed briefly on the edge of the Hawthorn scrub and Gadwall (4) Shoveler (2) Teal (25+) Greylag (2) and Snipe (6) were seen in the Southern field.

At the northern edge of the reserve I spent a marvellous ten minutes watching a displaying pair of Common Buzzards,before they slowly drifted north towards Halling.
