April 5th 2012

At least 4 Black-necked Grebes at the pond today but for some reason wherever they went so did the fishing boats so prone to disturbance and were very mobile resulting at one stage thinking there were 7 present, all in summer plumage. There were well over 400 hirundines present with 250 Swallow 150 Sand Martin and 2 House Martin. Also present were Snipe, Ruff, 2 Oystercatcher, 3 Shelduck, 8 Shoveler, 8 Gadwall, 11 Goldeneye, 15 Wigeon, 40 Teal, 60 Meadow Pipit, Sparrowhawk, Raven, 5 Buzzard, 2 Great-spotted Woodpecker and 2 Jay.
