Not much sign of Spring today...

The three Sand Martins which battled the NE wind this morning to fly through Lockwood must have wondered why they had bothered leaving Africa. I felt the same about leaving home, it was so cold and dark at 8-30 am . The pair of Scaup were still in residence on the west side of Lockwood with four Goldeneye while a Peregrine made a half-hearted attempt at chasing the gulls. Not much of a reward for a couple of hours but compared with the southern half, it was a veritable bird bonanza. A walk round the Warwicks produced just a single Meadow Pipit while No 1 held another pair of Goldeneye. I could not, I'm afraid, even raise the enthusiasm to go round No 5 and went home instead.
