Dinton Pastures (25/04/11)

My annual, early morning spring visit to Dinton Pastures. Not particular good this year missing out on Lesser Whitethroat and Swift and some common finches etc. However, still some good birds particularly the pair of Mediterranean Gulls on Lee Farm GP which after an altercation with the local Black-headed Gulls flew off at 6.30am.

Other good birds included 4 Egyptian Geese, 2 Garden Warblers, 11 Common Terns, Cuckoo, Cetti's Warbler (seen well), Nightingale, female Grey Wagtail, Red Kite and Buzzard.

Only managed to hear Reed Warbler, the brisk wind probably kept them out of sight.

Overall tally was 51 species (one heard)
