First of the year - always a pleasure

Tuesday 17th March 2015
Went to Ladywalk and had an eventful hour or so. From Riverwalk hide a Curlew could be seen and a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker could be heard in the distant line of Poplars. On the way round to investigate there was a Redshank on B pool. The Woodpecker continued to drum and was eventually located high up in the trees.

First birds of the day were a pair of Ringed plovers closely followed by a pair of Little ringed Plovers both on some rough ground near Coventry. There was a first Wheatear of the year at Baginton with a flock of 20+ Meadow pipits. It was also nice to see a Tawny Owl on the way back.
