I spent an hour in each hide and there were signs of spring visible from both. from the top hide I could hear a skylark singing but I was unable to locate it. in front of the hide a wren was singing loudly as it very quickly flew about.
Time to go to the second hide and on the way there I saw a grey partridge flying in the field on my left.
From Garganey hide it was possible to see a few birds on the edge of the water. in the group were, lapwing, redshank, oystercatcher, teal wigeon, mallard, shoveler, starling and golden plover.
I could also hear curlew as they flew around. A very pleasant couple of hours to round off half term week. A busy week ahead so probably no more blogs until the weekend.
