At last a year tick

Sunday I managed to get out around 08:00 despite the rain, I did at least dodge the heavy stuff 30-45 minutes before.

Very little happening at LFGP, so as things brightened up John and I headed back along the Loddon and after a moment heard the distinct call of Coal Tit

Time pressures meant nothing else really happened.

This morning I managed an 06:15 start, which I began at BSL sailing club and 19 Pochard and an Oystercatcher was about it, so headed for views over the West side, but failing to see the Brent Goose, I marched on to Heron's Water and am fairly sure the Ferruginous has left, as this is the third absence of the bird in recent days.

John saw 2 Bittern on Sunday morning, I saw none.

Completing a loop back at the car park field and a 5 minute look over the landfill, I added nothing.

If anyone wants to inform me they have had Mistle Thrush, Grey Wagtail, Jaack Snipe or Goldeneye in March, do let me know for the month list.
