Spring is here

My first April walk up Blakeney Point this year
There was a real feeling that birds were on the move. Plenty of Spring migrants arriving and lots of Winter species departing.
Of the departing birds:
2 Pink footed Geese - Eye Field
20+ Golden Plover - most of which were in summer plumage
1 Female Merlin - which headed straight out into the north sea!

And the fresh arrivals:
1-2 male Redstarts
2 Whitethroat
3+ Whimbrel
25+ Wheatear
10+ Willow Warblers
6+ Chiffchaff
and a few Swallows
