Linacre - 25th March 2012

A quick hour and a half visit this morning in what turned out to be glorious weather of bright sunshine and 12 degrees heat- very nice.

Calm conditions on the top reservoir

First up were 4 singing Chiffchaffs along with drumming Great-spotted Woodpecker, a pair of Bullfinch (my first sighting this year) and a pair of Carrion Crows carrying nesting material into a tree ( a first record of nesting behaviour).

Out on the water it was quite quiet, but there were 2 Canada Geese ( 1 plus the hybrid), 3 Grey Wagtails that were chasing each other about and the pair of Great-crested Grebes with their nest on the middle reservoir. A Little Grebe was heard trilling again but not seen.

A few Bluebells had come through in the woods below the bottom car park.
