Nightingales made a very early appearance this year with reports of birds at two sites on the 2nd & 3rd of April ... on the quite remarkable:


The Blackcap is just one of the dozen singing males at Searles farm lane GP. The RC pochard was also at the site (probably the best site in the county to see this striking import)


Next appear some common birds taken at Swinley forest over the Easter weekend. Missing are crossbill & redstart which were present in good numbers but were too distant for anything but record shots

A 'very rare' alpine swift was followed by a 'very scarce' pied fly over the Easter weekend - the former hanging around for four days


The final piece of Spring's jigsaw puzzle is complete with the sound of churring nightjars on a dusk walk through Caesar's camp
