Spring purrs along!

Took a ride down to Holme for a couple of hours this afternoon and it proved rather rewarding! First the beautiful "purring" of the rapidly declining Turtle Dove, I wonder how many more years are left that we will have this pleasure? Next up was a superb male Redstart flitting round on the edge of the forestry, nearby 5 Wheatear, plus 2 Whimbrel flew over. In the dunes several Small Copper, plus Peacock and Orange-tip. Still 8 Brents on Lavendar marsh.

Up on the NWT pools, c12 Ruff and on the way out a Common Sandpiper and 5+ Wheatear alongside the entrance track.

Finally at NWT there is a questionnaire about signage (or lack of it!), reserve facilities, I suggest all concerned fill it in. Did mine today!!
