The first House Martin for the year was reported at about 17.30 this afternoon at Hayburn Wyke.

Goshawks were in evidence again at Wykeham Raptor View Point with a maximum 3 in view at any one time and also a couple of Buzzards plus 4 Crossbills and 3 Siskins flew over

At Wykeham South Lake today’s count was 2 Shelduck, 2 Goldeneye, a Gadwall a singing Chiffchaff but more unusual was a Water Rail flushed by a dog near to the observation spot.

As spring moves forward the number of Chiffchaffs is increasing and today there were 5 singing birds at Burton Riggs this morning.
