14th March 2009

After seeing a number of Sand Martin reports on the BirdGuides BirdMap, I cycled down to Earlswood during the late afternoon hoping to see my first for 2009, but no hirundines were seen. However, I've just noticed on the map that there's a Sand Martin report from nearby Alvechurch (Worcestershire) so perhaps I'll see this species tomorrow when I do my third WeBS counts at the lakes.
The lakes were pretty quiet again, apart from Terry's Pool which had 1 male Goosander, 1 female Pochard, 4 Tufted Ducks and 6 Cormorants, with 4 Goldfinches around the sides.
