A couple of Redwing overhead as we drank tea sat on the wall at The Butts, Warkworth were welcome additions to,'the list'.
Buzzard and Stock Dove were added on the 22nd.
On the evening of the 23rd, the sea was absolutely covered with noisy Black Headed Gulls, it hurt the eyes looking through them in low light. However a raft of 15 Common Scoter were nice. Interesting though were groups of Whooper Swan flying North, 30 or so in each group and then a larger group seemed to land in the fields towards Birling.
120 exactly I counted and a further 60+ moving north.
Now you see things like this, I don't forget, theres is something about Stock Doves too, its as if they are birds of childhood, I hope you get that, a bit soppy perhaps. I loved it anyway, I've loved March.
