A trip to Caldecotte Lake this afternoon to check out what summer migrants may have arrived. Mallard (not a summer migrant but one of the regular crew)
Most of the winter ducks seemed to have gone, as other than Mallards and a few Tufteds, just one female Goldeneye was present.
Several Chiffchaffs were singing around the lakes and probably 50 Swallows and slightly less Sand Martins fed over it.
On the dam a flock of Wagtails consisted of 13 Pieds and a very dapper male Yellow. The photo below is not the best, but as usual if you click on it, it comes up better.( and just look at all the flies that they are feeding on)
Several Great crested Grebes were around, most of which had paired up.
