Good movement of incoming Migrants

Sunday 22nd April 2018

The pace has clearly picked up with the improvement in the weather. A Curlew flew over Mancetter Quarry and Sedge warblers and Lesser Whitethroats were seen at Alvecote pools. In fact I'd seen several Lesser Whitethroats well before my first Whitethroat and I still haven't seen or heard a Willow warbler. Just not trying hard enough !
Did manage to see the well watched Ring Ouzel at Little Packington and Brandon Marsh held a drake Garganey today. Just up the road at Baginton Airfield was a cracking male Whinchat as well as another Wheatear.
