Events eventually conspired for me today. After sitting reading about biblical falls at Beer and Portland (and regretting having to go to work on a day when a bit of a backlog of migrants pushed through) I thought I had missed out. A slightly gripping text was received (cheers Andy) about a Reed/Sedge Warbler singing at the point mid afternoon followed by a call confirming Reed Warbler - a patch tick - as I was on the way home. Luckily, my wife pulled up just as I was getting off the bus with a still sleeping baby. To the Point! Reed Warbler safely bagged for the patch list along with (embarrasingly) my first Wheatear of the year (before today, there had only been 3/4 Wheatears here this year). Back home in time to catch the end of In The Night Garden keeping the baby happy too! Also had my first House Martin of the year early this morning.
What are things coming to when you have to wait until the 1st of May for Wheatear and House Martin? Hopefully, the next few days will bring some more stuff through.
