Thorpe marshes....... House Martin !
After all the fuss and the excitement of the wedding, I nipped down for an hours birding at Thorpe. More of the usual now but after getting past the grumpy bull and his girlfriends I managed to find at least 2 House Martins among the 20 odd Sand Martins . My first for the year. On the way back Mike who I've bumped into a few times there said another Wheatear had dropped in during the week but moved on quickly and also he had seen 2 Swifts earlier that day too . Spring is here and easterly winds are here to stay too, bring it on !
