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
10+ Willow Warblers
and a few Swallows

No sign of any rings and as pure as can be
This was a long awaited Norfolk tick having dipped them a few times over the last few years.
Also here: 2 Green Sand flew over. 1 Common Sandpiper. Singing Grasshopper Warbler. A few Sedge Warblers now back and lots of Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs
