Today I was on the lookout for any spring migrants despite the northerly airflow. Raw Nook NR held the usual suspects with Wrens, Robins and Blackbirds all in full song but no spring migrants.
However, as soon as I entered Toad Holes Beck I got the lovely warm feeling that spring was here. Yes not one but two male Chiffchaffs in full song…brilliant.
There was a pair of Grey Wagtail also at the site and at Caldene fields another pair were feeding in the stream which is excellent news. Also four Meadow pipits were observed heading north back to their breeding grounds.
