Thursday 26th April

As can be seen in the photo. it was a blustery day, with a cool wind. The Warblers have arrived, a couple of Reed Warblers, back a bit earlier this year, are on the fishing pond, not seen them yet. Managed to get a glimpse of a Sedge, see photo, but not yet heard a Chiffchaff, and with the wind or the cold the Grasshoppers have gone quiet.

At the feeders a female Bullfinch with fungus on it’s left leg has been seen, it appears to be painful for it to stand on but still does not put it off eating, see photos.

The last couple of days we have come across cow pats on the wrong side of the fence and this morning the culprits were found enjoying a good chew in the sun.
