Birding for The Clampdown #4 - 27th March

Reed Bunting 
 
A quick one today, from a morning walk along the seafront, via the Glen, Muston Sands and the golf course and pond under sunny skies with a chilly NE breeze. Eerily quiet, but for birdsong, the sea, a single airplane and trains, all of which seemed to be empty as they sped by.

Plenty of wildlife action however, with lots of breeding activity and territorial skirmishes; highlights included another two White Wagtails and five Chiffys singing in the general area.
