Still been doing my weekly visits to the weald,the water levels have receded now,but oystercatcher and shelduck still in the northern weald.
Small finch flocks still about saw my first swallow last week.
Night visits to kynnersley reservoir now include bats as well as barn owls and woodcock,as forgot my bat detector had to do visual id for the bats,daubentons were feeding over the water and had silvery chest,whilst piperstrelles,are small bats with fast erratic flight.
Corn buntings are singing in the northen weald,last week came accross a march of toads heading for the ditches,which have water crickets on the surface look like they are playing dodgems.
Came accross a patch of spring beauty photo to follow
