April - a month of two seasons !
We all woke up this morning to a good covering of the white stuff !
Broom GP's looked rather different from yesterday when spring almost arrived. Quite bizzare scenes of over 100 Sand Martins and a handful of Swallows all hawking over the water in a snow blizzard ! Norman quite liked it and is just about getting used to the 6am weekend starts now - Higbee remained in the car snug as a bug. Birds included a female Merlin, LR Plover and Willow Warbler new in.
Last night I had brief and distant views of a Short-eared Owl at Clopton village in Cambs - a nice site tick.
Going AWOL now for the next ten days - more later.....
