Finished my BTO Breeding Bird Survey at Broadlands Lake and Wade Bridge this weekend. As is often the case, the second survey whittled out with very little to add, except a distant Sedge Warbler. The best bird of the morning was a Red Kite overhead.. Within the survey boundary, but outside the timeframe.
From there, I headed to Badminston for some vis-mig. With blue skies and a South wind it seemed like a good idea, but not much to report here. Baddesley Common was also fairly quiet over the weekend.
I seem to struggle to find quality in Spring compared with Autumn. Only hope now lies with a few days in Shetland at the end of the month.
