Despite the continued lack of visible migration Spring is definitely with us. On the water meadow in Felbrigg this morning three Lapwing were displaying to each other, Snipe were flying round – though not ‘drumming’ yet and the pair of Oystercatcher were observed mating. The Green Sandpiper was present early morning before flying off west and, whilst I was watching all this action, Siskin were ‘buzzing’ above my head in the hollow oak. A Shelduck did a brief fly-through – my first here for 2015, but alas it didn’t stop to have it’s photo taken. The Little Owl started calling from the oaks by the dam as I came to leave. There are plenty of singing Chiffchaff now but still no Blackcap – any day now!
