Had a quiet morning at Dru with little to report. The snow has all gone now and there is a good number of ducks on the Budge Fields, with Shoveler up to 5 now. On the big pool, there are now 10 shelduck and a very noisy canada goose on its tod!
Nothing offshore of note, on the way out there was a big flock of fieldfare with some redwing opposite Druridge hamlet along with starlings, golden plover and lapwing. A kestrel on the wires here was the only year tick. Maybe spring is in the air though, there was a skylark singing today and Alan Gilbertson had been watching the resident magpies carrying sticks into the wood.

Yep, Spring is sure on it's way. Lots of territorial singing dow here today.
