Velator reserve/Wrafton Pond

With all the snow gone, the Thrush population has nearly all headed off to forage in the fields. Only 3/4 Song Thrushes in and around the reserve. 2 Great-spotted Woodpeckers seen calling. A Great Tit singing - lovely sign of spring to come! One Woodcock seen under the trees.

Wrafton Pond is still mostly iced over, but a pair of Swans has arrived (to reclaim their territory?) 80+ Black-headed Gulls, including one or two showing quite a lot of black on their heads. 2 Common Gulls.
