April ends on a high

A Monday morning text reporting four Black Necked Grebe at Lake 74 made the day at work go rather slowly. Then it seemed as if family commitments would scupper my after work visit. In the end I managed to get to Twitchers at around five o’clock. No birders and no BN Grebes to be seen. I was only able to stay till half past so not a great start. After a few minutes one of the Grebes appeared at the North East end of the lake, eventually all four birds were in view with two birds displaying. It would have been nice to have had time to go down to the hide for some closer views. Another birder had arrived and mentioned that the Nightingale had been showing well earlier on which was good to know! Just as I was leaving a Hobby appeared and circled around gaining height towards a flock of Swifts and Swallows. Better views than I had on Friday. A successful end to April’s birding. All in all a pretty good month. Hopefully May will be just as good.
