We also met up with RDME who had seen our first Swallow of the year, and LP who had seen a Brambling.
Firecrests were still very much in evidence with a small arrival of Chiffchaffs but we were still unable to find any Wheatears, although I never checked the Birling loop which is a favorite site for Wheatears.
During this recent influx of Firecrests, RHC advise me he had a minimum of 6 Firecrests on a day during this period which now increases our daily total to 16 on the 25th March.
