I don't normally photograph Wrens when I catch them, but this one had a rather neat white feather patch on its nape. No doubt a valiant attempt to become a new species!
I managed to get a photo of this Osprey as it circled over Thornton. I think it has what look like rings on its left leg. It might be a Rutland bird, but I await confirmation.
Other sighting of Spring migrants have included House Martin and Yellow Wagtail on the 10th April and Willow Warbler on the 13th.
Large numbers of hirundines were feeding in the cold northerly over the fields above Stony Bank. There were 18 Pied Wagtails, one a candidate for a White Wagtail and also 2 Meadow Pipits.
