More New Species for the patch

Lockdown birding means that our resident expert, Mike, is spending more time exercising locally instead of leading exotic birding trips!  He and Lesley found a probable Caspian Gull on the 7th April and a Great White Egret on April 22nd.

And one member was really lucky to have a Hoopoe turn up on her lawn on the 29th.

In addition, the young herons are getting a big large for their nests,

and we are delighted that good numbers of Nightingales have been singing, and House Martins and Swifts have returned to the village in early May.
