Friday 27th April

Spotted my first ducklings today on thr fishing pond, only five and they will need to keep close to mum these cold nights.
Also a male merganser found sleeping on one of the spits, hope it’s mate is sitting. The two gadwall are still on pond 17.
Short Eared owls are still passing through, appears to be much later than usual.
Barn Owl spotted on Monday evening while on way to Natterjacks, plenty of calling from pond 35, the field pond and the wet area in the third field.
