Deer Park etc

I could almost believe it was spring at the Deer Park this morning with the warm sunshine. Not much in the way of migrants, however, with just 3 Wheatears - two females and a male. A female Merlin flew along the cliffs and a party of 5 Chough were feeding on the cliff top.

A similar story at Marloes Mere with 1 Chiffchaff outside the hide and a further 6 along the track near the youth hostel. On the Mere  c.30 Teal, and a few Shoveller and Mallard.

Quiet too at The Gann soon after midday - 2 Little Egrets, a Black Tailed Godwit, 5 Redshank and a few Teal and Wigeon.
