27th & 28th March – One Swallow, less than one Woodcock, but plenty of Water Rails...

In Tony Taylor's words Tuesday 27th was "wet & windy with nothing to report beyond five Water Rails, two Chiffchaffs and seven Goldcrests."

On Wednesday 28th, "Ann saw a Swallow, but definitely not summer." Also seen were two Fieldfares, 11 Redwings, a pair of Stonechats and a female Bullfinch. Grant Sherman saw a Hooded Crow and there were fresh pluckings from a predated Woodcock in St John's Valley. There were four Water Rails that Tony says, "included a pair in Smelly Gully that stuck very closely together, as they did on 27th and one singing in St Helen's Field this evening."
