An early morning start today to complete my webs count for April saw few highlights being seen,the best of which was a adult male Marsh Harrier west at Barrow Haven,with my first Reed Warbler of the year nearby at Fairfield Pit and between Goxhill and New Holland the best bird was a single Barn Owl with me also getting some lovely views of a Sedge Warbler,my favourite Warbler species!.
After this i decided to go to Messingham as the weather was gorgeous today and things were slightly better.The best bird was my first Cuckoo of the year and i also enjoyed brilliant views of the now resident Marsh Harriers and Avocets.
Insect sightings here today included several Bee-Fly's,a recent coloniser to the reserve and my first Green-veined White's of the year,with 4 being seen.
The only other highlight was a single Common Lizard.
Some lovely weather today,a great spring day.
