Today I went looking for spring migrants at Raw Nook NR & TH Beck. I was a bit optimistic as it is usually around the 17th of March that the first migrant appears in our area…given a few days either way.
So it was no surprise that nothing as found. However, there were signs of spring as I witnessed a Mallard dispute.
A pair were at TH Beck when another male…well took a fancy to the female Mallard. He was chased off by the other male but I suspect he may try again!
Then at Caldene fields a returning Skylark briefly sang as it carried on it’s journey as it flew N.
