Wintersett 03.05.16

6 - 11 degrees, with sunshine and scattered cloud and a very cold moderate to fresh wind.
Wintersett Res: A CUCKOO was seen and heard in Wintersett Village and then in the Willow Wood. A WHIMBREL flew north at 11.40hrs.  A Peregrine flew over SW fields. Siskin 1 over north,  Grasshopper Warbler 1 west bank. Common Tern 5,  Garden Warbler 2m + 1m ACP,  
Anglers CP: Ringed Plover 1,  Dunlin 1,  Common Sandpiper 1, Cormorant 1 and Wigeon 2m.  The first fledged Dunnock and the first young Coot were seen.  The Oystercatchers weren't happy when Psycho, the adult Yellow-legged Gull, turned up.  Many thanks to Lynz Harston for capturing the action!
