March 31, 2013 in Latest Patch Sightings by Jim Steele

At last a little sun and slightly better than sub-arctic conditions! At least 11 Buzzards soaring, together with a Kestrel and 2 Sparrowhawk. A nice flock of about 25 Fieldfare with a few Redwing. 2 Curlew high and soaring North. Cormorants and a Heron soaring. Great Spotted Woodpecker drumming. Stock Doves. No Skylarks singing today (there were recently) and there appears to be no Lapwing locally – yet more gloom for this species, unfortunately. Jim.
