Not much time in the field last week or so, but managed to squeeze in a female Black Redstart (no eastern genes unfortunately) last weekend. Still lots of geese in the area, most doing their best to denude the newly sown fields.Short-eared Owls popping up every so often. No extended chances to look at the sea, but will have a chance later today hopefully.
Best bird of the period, and a new patch bird for me was a reasonable looking pure-blood Hooded Crow flying over the back of Cotehill.
Total: 87, or 56.37% patch average
Well done to Ciaron on the Bluetail...what a cracking spring bird!
