It's coming round to that time of year again, when a young (poetic licence) birders thoughts turn to Spring and of squeezing every last bird out of the patch.
Last year, which was extremely poor for Spring migration we recorded 75 species, (81 on April 27th 2013) this year we are doing it one week earlier, on Sunday April 26th 2015. All observers welcome.

As Neil Kinnock once said ‘things can only get better’ but we are going to give it a go anyway!
The last two Patchwatch lists are here: 1st & 2nd Annual Walthamstow Patchwatch Daylist
The full extent of the patch can be seen here: Patch boundaries
Do as much or as little as you want, dawn till dusk or an afternoon stroll. Have fun (and find us a goody!) It's all to play for.
