I planned to take today off-having a few spare days to use up, with the intention of visiting Norton Green and getting the first Wheatear of the season. I was beaten to it as three were seen yesterday.
I spent an hour there this morning, meeting up with a couple of regulars. One male Wheatear was still present, and there were also around 25 Redwing in the trees. A few Grey and Red Legged Partridge were nice to see, but apart from an abundance of singing Skylark and Yellowhammer, we did not see much else.
I had hoped that with the reasonably mild conditions that we would hear at least one Chiffchaff and maybe an early hirundine would go over. Sometimes the pools hold Little Ring Plovers and Stonechat and Black Redstart is possible too.
