March 15th 2010

A stunning spring day spent battling my DIY occasionally getting the chance to stick me head out the window once in awhile. At least 3 Sparrowhawk’s were displaying over the garden and it was quite obvious which one was the female as she dwarfed her admirers. Nipped out late morning and there was a Brimstone butterfly feeding on a crocus along Dunchurch Road – my first of the year and a Ladybird and Bumblebee species flew around the garden early afternoon.
Decided to do the roost at the pond late afternoon as the wind had picked up which might account for the adult Kittiwake which was probably one of the small influx that came inland a few days ago and reservoir hopping making its way back to the coast, also 2 Great-northern Diver, 5 Meadow Pipit, female Reed Bunting, 4 Skylark, 2 female Goosander and 24 Goldeneye.
