First Swifts of the year.


16.40 - 18.30

My first Swifts of the year as two flew over heading north, a Cuckoo was singing from the western end of the old county tip. Five Greenshank and a Green Sandpiper along with a single Snipe. Four pairs of Avocet of which none appeared to be sitting!

A Water Vole swam across the moat towards me, five individuals were seen in all, the evening seems to be the best time to see them!
