April’s Highlights

 A couple of local tours and one further afield tour produced some wonderful wildlife moments.

With most of the migrant birds now back with us we soon managed a good number of Warblers species.

Chiffchaff, Willow warbler, Whitethroat, Blackcap, Reed warbler, Sedge warbler, Garden warbler all seen well, also a pair of Cuckoo’s chasing each other around at close range was a real highlight.

Another area produced several Sand Martins along with a few House Martins and Swallows too.

A barn owl sat on a roadside fence allowed close up views also a distant flight of a Bittern was nice to see after hearing one booming close by.

A weasel ran across the track in front of us also a few butterfly species are on the wing now with Brimstone, Tortoiseshell, Comma and Orange tips all seen.
