Saturday 27th April

It has been a really nice day, just little cool breeze. This morning the birds were out in full song, snapped a Dunnock on the way to the feeders, there appears to be plenty about this year, counted 7 under the feeders.

Managed to catch a quick shot of a Common Sandpiper on the fishing pond, it’s been there a couple of days now.

In the afternoon had a stroll around Gillies, quite a few Small Tortoiseshell about, first this year, the one in the photo looks a bit worn, must have over wintered.

At Gillies pond there were a few Willow Warblers flitting in and out of the Willows over the pond to catch flies.

Also the local Moorhen has hatched a couple of young, photo of one being fed.
