Redshank - Imperial
Five Goldeneye and a Long-tailed Duck upriver from the Imperial this evening. Also 28 Pintail and 2 Mediterranean Gulls (first and second winters) off there. Had my first quick look on Orcombe but could do no better than a Green Woodpecker. It felt easily warm enough for at least a Wheatear.


  1. I've been strolling around Orcombe with the dog the last few days but, like you, nothing showing yet. But, felt very Spring-y! On their way ...

  2. Hi Nick - yep any day now. Will try and have a look this weekend. May see you up there. Cheers.
