Oystercatchers return

The Oystercatchers have returned from their coastal wintering areas to breed at some inland sites. Two pairs have arrived at our local lake this week. Lapwings are also returning to their local breeding sites and soon we should here the sound of Curlews arrived back from the coast to breed. An impressive skein of Pink- footed Geese moved  north west through the valley this morning. The Waxwings were there again today, lovely views of them in the early sunshine on this frosty morning.
