After the glorious spring day at Paxton Pits, when 32 species of bird were seen, plus a colony of rare small black miner bees, brimstone butterflies, muntjac and squirrel, and only two obvious migrants - chiffchaffs - it is intended to meet again at the excellent Paxton Pits Reserve.
This will be on Wednesday 19 April: meet in the Visitor Centre at the Reserve at 10 am. (They have blueberry muffins and coffee.) It should permit an interesting comparison of the Reserve before and after the full arrival of migrants. And at Paxton Pits there is always the possibility of singing nightingales.
I hope we may enjoy a good turnout again.
