Little Ringed Plover – 31st March

This morning a steady stream of Sand Martins flew through the reserve, to the north, with a few Swallows. On the flooded field across the river was a Little Ringed Plover, Green Sandpiper and nine Oystercatchers. There were also large numbers of Tawny Mining Bees, which were seen all over the reserve.
