Sunday 9th April 1300hrs.

Red Kite being mobbed by Crow. Soared high and drifted norh towards Hemingby

L.Egret sharing the tern island with pair of BH Gulls. The gulls have been around for a few weeks and could be possibly considering a breeding attempt which would be a first for this location.

Highlight of the day,however, was finding 4 Avocets on the large scrape. A first for me at this site. I know they occur and breed downstream at Kirkby pits but this is my first record upstream in the Bain valley north of Horncastle.

Earlier this morning I had my first Swallow of the spring in the farmyard at Baumber at 0830hrs. One day later than last year!

Shouldn't there be an apostrophe in Shearman's Wath, Mike?

Well done Stuart, I'll have to concede that I shot myself in the foot there but not before I had consulted the Ordnance Survey!

There was I thinking that you might have caught too much sun yesterday on the touch line by exposing all that lily white flesh in those flash shorts. Anyway I bet you'll be well wrapped up when you hit the golf course tomorrow as we are going back to more seasonal temperatures. I expect to read reports of breeding Crossbills by tomorrow evening?
