Meadow Pipits starting to return…

Today a number of Meadow Pipits were observed moving back N over Caldene fields following their winter in the S.

Also there were a party of 7 Tufted Duck ( 6 males+1 female at Toad Holes Beck.

The males were in the early stages of courtship.

This a record count for the species at this site.

Sadly I could find no frog spawn at the pond at Raw Nook NR.

There maybe a slim possibility spawn was laid before the heavy snow and rain which has raised the pond level. Fingers crossed.

If your going for a walk in Raw Nook NR look out for the masses of Scarlet Elf cups which are showing really well just now.

A Common Buzzard was mobbed by a party of passing Herring Gulls over Toad Holes Beck.
