Thursday 5th April 2012 - Afternoon

Two new waders in a Common Snipe flushed from Back Brook and a lone Ringed Plover in amongst an ever increasing number of his Little Ringed cousins. Also the usual Oystercatcher pair but Redshank numbers now up to four. Two Little Egrets also hunt around the margins.

Three Northern Wheatear also on site which seems to be part of a general fall of the species in the area (see below).

Oddly the Wagtail flock seems to have gone walkabout, not a single bird seen but a Grey Wagtail was seen on the river.

**Just off site, over the canal at the back of Old Wolverton church a total of five Northern Wheatears could be found.**
