3.5.16.

Tuesday…Mixed weather…Sun/Overcast and 3 Rain showers that wasn’t forecast 14ºC

Ken checked out HC today. The Wood Warbler was still singing 200m west of Birch Coppice car park. Ken also sent me a photo of a Tree Pipit from today…

Good number of Common Terns today….

A male Sparrowhawk just missed a group of Tree Sparrows at The Gazebo Hide. But at least he was kind enough to do a fly past, albeit empty handed/footed…

Lesser Whitethroat was behind the Gazebo Hide, but it was really hard to photograph. This is the best of a bad bunch…
