For one reason or another I've not had a chance to get out to the Meadow over the last couple of days though fortunately there have been some reports from others to keep things ticking over. Dave Doherty visited today and discovered the first COMMON TERN of the year along with 6 OYSTERCATCHERS, 4 REDSHANK and 4 WILLOW WARBLERS.
Mary MacDougall added a couple of SHELDUCK and reported that there were now two Kestrels back in Burgess Field. She also mentioned that the bird song there was phenomenal with singing Willow Warblers and a Blackcap as well as all the usual common species. This is of course the best time of year for bird song as birds arrive and stake out their territories before getting down to the hard graft of breeding.
