Today's best birds were Kingfisher, 26 Herring Gulls, 26 Canada Geese, 5 Greylags, 3 Cormorants and 4 Song Thushes singing. A pair of Stock Doves were flight displaying (I can't say as I have seen that very often).
Then at dusk Dave Standish saw a Bittern in the reedbeds looking down from the first seat on the embankment. Our first since July 2018.
The first Crocus were in flower in a barmy 16c.

45 Canada Geese, 17 Greylags, 17 Tufted Duck and at least 4 Ringed Plover on the Ash Plain/Symphony. A Great Crested Grebe has returned hopefully to breed again.
