Come ON Spring...

Beer Head wasn't very spring like at all this afternoon! Flipping cold it was, and the only hint of anything spring were these cuties....

Awwwww!!!

Oh, and this...

1x Bun!

An early afternoon sweep of the estuary would have been better if it wasn't for these flushers....

****s!!!! Bye bye birdies....

Another check later produced two Med Gulls (adult and second-winter), and I managed to get a closer look at GOR...

It is so good to have him/her back!

The only other birdie news I have to report for today is of three Green Sands on Blackhole Marsh and the Spoonbill still on Colyord Marsh this morning. A count of 37 Pied Wagtails on Bridge Marsh was rather notable, I'm sure either a White Wag or an LRP (or both!) will join them within the next couple of days.

You know, I really don't like March much...I've said it before on here! Expectation is so high, as is the anticipation of the floodgates opening for the northbound migrants....it is so so so near! But this month just drags on and on and on and ON....

  3. have to agree with you about March. tough month. and we have just had a massive cold spell. I think it is about 10C outside.
