Not en masse but the first spring migrants are trickling through. Caught up with a drake Garganey this afternoon at Filey Dams. He showed nicely infront of the hide before flipping onto the east pool. Included are some dire record shots. Nothing much else at Filey Dams save the usual ducks, gulls and redshank.
This morning another trip up to Wykeham produced a displaying male Goshawk, a loafing female with a full crop and a trio of Common Buzzards. The birdwatchers car park produced my first Nuthatch of the year and a self found Marsh Tit in the forest by a pheasant feeder was nice. A few Grey Wags knocked about at Hackness but no Dipper or Mandarin sadly. A Jay cackled across my path and I bumped into Naffertons other Birder.
Ive also stuck in a blurry shot of the Great Grey Shrike from Saturday.
