Started off at Soddy Gap
Bit rough this morning but
7 Chiffchaff and a Willow Warbler Singing, Willow warbler full week earlier than last year and 2 weeks previous years before that.
Redpoll, 3 Buzzard,1 Raven, 2 Stock Dove Herring and LBB Gulls, usual wildfowl and a few Skylark.
Then i moved onto Bassenthwaite lake to see if there were any Ospreys about, i wasnt to be disapointed. I Watched a male Osprey fly from the south of Bassenthwaite lake to catch a fish then circle high. Then in the same scope view a Goshawk put on a small display.
Plenty of hirundines high up probably all Sandmartin,, 1 did shine blue in the sun so could have been a Swallow.
Upto 8 Common Buzzard, Red brestend merg, loads of teal, tufted and wigeon but surprisingly NO pochard, 14 Ferel Barnacle, Geese flew over, 250 Cormorant, 1 GG Grebe and a little grebe.
Osprey...well you get the idea.
