.......but not on the patch which remains on 59 which is where it was at the end of March. Being away has boosted the year list but not the patch list. The Wetland Centere at Barnes is greening up nicely and had a wheatear and sand martins as well as a range of singing migrants - blackcap, willow warbler, chiffchaff , sedge warbler and cetti's warbler. I managed to miss the little ringed plover and under time pressure did not get to see the oystercatcher which is not on my site list.
I hope to be back in May an add a few 2015 ticks to the list. If you are ever in London try to make half a day for this superb site. There is enough there to interest children and non-birding partners as well.
