Redstart – 17th April

This morning, on the Causeway, a male Redstart was seen, first on the bench and then it flew into the Deep Pit and foraged along the bank. There was a Reed Warbler singing in the reeds at the north-west end of the Deep Pit.  There are still some Wheatears on the field beyond the Wader Scrape and more Whitethroats, Lesser Whitethroats and Sedge Warblers are in. A Yellow Wagtail flew along the Causeway and a Grasshopper Warbler was reeling near the north-west corner of the Large Gravel Pit.  PS.
