Almost Spring

Insects in the Sun

Grey Partridge

The ancient forest appeared at Hauxley only to disappear under sand two days later.

New Marsh Harrier over the reedbed. No missing feather, smaller wing patches and very distinct, faded primaries on right wing.

I love seeing returning migrant birds. What a  journey these Sand Martins must have had and they arrive at a cool windswept pool in Northumberland (4 on Friday per AS, 12 yesterday with a Swallow ( per AC)  and 30+ today). In addition a Chiffchaff has been near the hide at Chev for over a week but finally started singing yesterday. Today another two birds arrived and were very busy feeding near the dunes.
