Thursday 11th April

Some more signs of spring today: a singing Chiffchaff by Walton Well Road car park, was the first that I'd heard this year and two SWALLOWS zipped over the floods in quick succession whilst I was checking out the waders. Talking of which, apart from the usual REDSHANK flock (which is gradually diminishing over the days and is now down to 5 or 6 birds), all the waders were concentrated in a small section on the inside of the flood bend. Totals were: 8 LITTLE RINGED PLOVER, 4 DUNLIN and 2 RINGED PLOVER. The two SHELDUCK were still about and a flock of 10 late-staying Fieldfare flew over "chacking" loudly. The moth trap produce another couple of Macro moths last night in the form of a Hebrew Character and another Clouded Drab.
