Sightings – skylarks, grey wagtails, dippers and more

Recent sightings by Judy Hampshire:

Sunday 26 March, 5.30pm above White City, Welton: skylarks fluttering and singing.

Monday 27 March: between 8.30 and 9am: Pair of grey wagtails, and dipper on Wellow Brook at Welton. (One morning last week, I saw a pair of dippers there but usually only see one at a time.) A wren accompanied me up the footpath at back of MN leisure centre car park, then on the broadwalk at back of Sun Chemical I saw a female goldcrest. ( A few weeks ago I saw a male goldcrest at the same spot, who actually hopped towards me along the metal fence, until it was level with my head! A magical moment!)

 

Sightings reports now on the CVWG website

The first sightings reports have come in! Andre has sent in some interesting ones, which are posted on the Sightings page. This is an interim measure while we look at setting up a system that members can use to post information themselves, by category. If you are interested in posting info and/or have suggestions for categories (e.g. Sightings!), please let us know via the Contact page.
