Some migrants are just starting to arrive, in the last week or so I have Blackcap singing, Sedge Warbler also, hard bird to get here at times and a couple of Sand Martins yesterday.
No sign of any Wheatears yet, I am keeping an eye on the area where I had them last year, there at Rainham so hopefully should come through.
The Kestrels are about to lay, watched the male the other day come in with what looked like a Mouse/Shrew and cache it near the nest box unseen by the female.
Haven’t pinned the Sparrowhawks down yet, elusive as ever, they are displaying and suspect they will go in the same area of Willow Trees as seen them going in there a couple of times.
Am only seeing a single Common Buzzard which might tell a story but good to catch up with Marsh Harrier high recently.
The one I need for the site list is a migrant Osprey, others have had them going through heading north to Scotland but yet to nail one down.
