Naturelog: 17th March

This was the first visit that Keith and I had made to the London Wetland Centre this year and it didn’t disappoint. On arrival, we made our way to the sheltered Lagoon to see if there were any migrants resting up and were rewarded with the sound of singing Willow Warbler, an extremely early date for the first arrival along with Chifchaff.  484 more words

More sightings from Carole and Martin

Volunteers Carole and Martin braved the gales yesterday to visit Milton Locks nature reserve and they have sent me some more lovely photos. The wildlife didn’t seem to mind Storm Doris and they spotted and snapped a handsome mute swan, a turnstone and a redshank . 59 more words

A Mystery Solved!

Last week, on our visit to Carsington Water, I took some photos of a Redshank and another, unknown, wader. That’s not the real mystery; I’m used to getting confused with waders. 138 more words
