Ready, Steady, Back

I did a recce to see if the Little Owls & Redstarts were all in place for this Tuesday's class. Unfortunately, this location still seemed in the grip of winter, with no hawthorns yet coming in to leaf. There were also none of the expected birds. There were Yellowhammers, Linnets, Red-legged Partridges, and a Peregrine but no Redstarts or Little Owls. However, on visiting two other sites with more flowing water we did find a Redstart at each site, plus a very confiding Treecreeper. I'm hoping more summer migrants will flood in before Tuesday's sessions, so everyone can enjoy them!
