March begins

2nd March I had a walk round the lake to see if there was any progress with arrivals. Two great Crested Grebe were having a courtship dance, but keeping away from the Canada geese, the mallards and the coots. On the trees surrounding the lake, long tailed tits, mistle thrush and nuthatch were very audible

3rd March another walk round Kem Mill. The dippers were busy nest building and the male grey wagtail was displaying so much, it seemed his chest would burst. Other birds in the area song thrush, great spotted woodpecker drumming, lots of wrens, and several blackbirds
