Friday 27th April

Found a few fresh kills this morning, all within a few yards of each other and on the main path, one duck egg, still with a runny yolk, feathers from what appears to have been a Goldfinch and lastly, under one of the gates, feathers from a wood pigeon.

Spotted a Grasshopper in the afternoon, just at the entrance to the tip, see photo.

Also a lone Ringed Plover was on the pebbles, opposite the horse field.

Finally, the Natterjacks have started early this year, just in one pond, and there are already tadpoles of two sizes see photos.
