March 29th 2011

Their was a small wave of visible migration going over the Grandborough valley this morning but unfortunately only a few could be identified due to the height they were traveling and it soon died off. Nothing special noted while at lower altitude a few Fieldfare and Redwing moved around locally. Summer migrants were more noticeable with my first Willow Warbler of the year calling near Sawbridge, Chiffchaff near Grandborough Fields and Swallow at Woodbine Farm.
Also in the area were Great-spotted Woodpecker, 23 Yellowhammer, 4 Reed Bunting, 3 Tree Sparrow, 5 Red-legged Partridge, 6 Bullfinch plus 8 Buzzard, 2 Raven and Sparrowhawk
A look at the pond produced male Wheatear, Grey Wagtail and Fieldfare on toft bank, adult and first summer Little Gull almost overlooked resting on the surface off farborough spit, 8 Goldeneye, 5 female Shoveler, 10 Gadwall, 34 Wigeon and 18 Teal. Toft shallows had Willow Warbler, Goldcrest, Treecreeper and 3 Chiffchaff.
