Monday 5th April

Work, work, work - only a few snippets from the last week as I've been working my butt off!  Common Buzzard over S (Research Station) on Monday 28th March.  The North Street allotment Nuthatch became two on Saturday 2nd April, let's hope they breed.

A Small Tortoiseshell was found near Four Acres, East Malling.  Today saw my first Willow Warbler of the year, singing along the path between Gallagher's Gallop and the Quarry, with up to 5x Chiffchaffs nearby.  Masses of Stock Doves (+40) on the research station, feeding on some newly-harrowed land.  Wood Anemones were in full bloom in Oaken Wood and signs of Bluebell flowers.

Still no Wheatear or Swallow, only a Wood Pigeon up on the hedge by the paddocks, but I'm off to Cornwall at the weekend so I imagine I'll see my first of the year down there.
