A few more local bits

Today I had a few more signs of Spring in the local area including the following:

Blackcap - 2 males heard singing at Wheldrake. My first of the year. I had a male in a local garden in December but nothing since!

Wheatear - 1 male at North Duffield Carrs.

Willow Warbler - Several heard at North Duffield and Wheldrake.

Sand Martin - 1 over Wheldrake.

Swallow - 2 over North Duffield Carrs and 1 over North Duffield Village.

Chiffchaff - lots now all over the place.

Work this morning was not as exciting as I'd hoped but I did get several Red Kite, with 3 Swallow and 5 Sand Martin in amongst a steady passerine passage north.
