21st-22nd March

The freezing gale force easterly wind and frequent snow showers have made the last couple of days census somewhat unpleasant (although compared to the rest of the country we've got off lightly!) There are still plenty of Blackbirds around with 74 counted on the latter date but new arrivals have been limited, the most notable being a Collared Dove on 21st and Dunnock on 22nd. There's been a small influx of Lapwings to 126 with migrants joining those which have already settled down to breed. Up to 3 Woodcocks have been seen along with 2 different Peregrines and 4 Woodpigeons.
