Goodbye Grimley...

It was only as I packed up and left Worcester for the Easter Holidays this afternoon that I realised just how much I'm going to miss Grimley over the next few weeks. Things were really starting to kick off, with a brief Little Gull last week and a fly-over Osprey reported on Tuesday whilst I partook in the rare practice of essay writing.

A brief session yesterday produced a lovely range of common migrants, with 2 Yellow Wagtail and 2 Common Sandpiper new in, joining 3 White Wagtail, 150+ Sand Martin, 6 Swallow and pair of Dunlin to bring the patch year list up to 85 species.

One of two Common Sandpipers feeding at close range on the shoreline yesterday evening.

Here's to some good old Surrey birding (and mothing) for the next two weeks!
