Brockholes Wetland LWT - 13th April 2009

(sorry that the last two posts have been without pictures)

3 rather impressive sightings came from the 12th April so I felt that I should have a go today - these were a Red Kite (2nd site record), Probable White Stork (to the north of the site), the First Whimbrel of the year.

13th April

3 Pinkfeet were with the group of Canada Geese present which is a decent record for the site, esp. in April.
5 Willow Warbler,

Sophie opened the Sluice on Main Pool last Monday so the level on the pool has dropped dramatically.

other wildlife present - Peacock, Orange tip, Small Tortoiseshell, Small White, Green Veined White, several Hare,
