|Prunus Kanzan (flowering cherry)|
I have continued my early morning visits to the patch which have been a bit mixed, the flash has had very little on just a few mallard, the occasional Lapwing and Stock Dove close by most mornings. The new Thacka beck nature reserve on the other hand has been doing OK, with recent sighting of Little Ringed plover yet again, sometimes 2 also more visits from the Ringed Plover, 2 Lapwing still sitting, and then the other day 2 White Wagtails amongst the Pied. At least 2 song thrush singing most morning by the M6, and 2 Red-legged Partridge in the same area.
Another day and another trip out, this time down to Leighton Moss, calling at Sizergh castle, but no Hawfinch.
Next I moved on to Warton Crag where I was able watch a brilliant display by both Peregrines, including mating.
The weather was fantastic making it a very good day, in fact a good few days.
