Hes East

Birding today involved a female White Wag on the Patch hoping from horse turd to horse turd, a raptor watch which failed to produce any Ospreys (but 6 Kestrel, 3 Buzzard, 1 Sparrowhawk) and a return visit in the afternoon saw 2 Ringed Plover, me trying to string anything that flew as a Sand Mart! and too many dog walkers! Dead battery so no pics of White Wag but smart bird and my first of the spring.

Target of 120 by the end of March in area might still be reachable tomorrow with some local birding. 

Still need;
Sand Martin, Blackcap, Garganey, Marsh Harrier, Sedge Warbler, Willow Warbler, Swallow, Osprey, Egyptian Goose and Lesser Spotted Woodpecker which have all been in the area recently.

As well as finding potential with Black-necked Grebe, Crane, Hawfinch, Long-eared Owl and anything else, it is spring afterall!!!

Stonechat would be nice though!

Wouldn't say no to a Ring Ouzel.

Black Red at Hes East would be sweet.

Missed Avocet this week so a grip back would be good!
