Spring is coming !

With the weather being rather mild the last few days it was no surprise to be woken by the sound of Robin and Great Tit as well as young Jack jabbing his finger in my eye before Sunrise!!

I walked to Barking Bay this morning as the Car wouldn't start, and two and a half miles later my first bird on site was a flyover Lesser Redpoll, little else to report though did add both Fieldfare and Redwing to the site year list as well as a single Great Tit, usual birds on the foreshore 3 Curlew, 20 Black-wit, 40 Redshank, 50 Shelduck.

The Linnet flock still about 200 strong and two calling Water Rail were noteworthy.

A walk through Mayesbrook on the way home produced a single Snipe, 2 Grey Wagtail, Little Egret and a small increase in Pochard as well as several Grey Heron pairs nest building.
