Friday April 13th
The most interesting news from today actually concerns earlier in the week. A Water Pipit was reported to the Dorset Bird Club as being at Longham on Tuesday 10th April. Presumably this is the same bird reported in late March. I could not find it today.
As for today, it was quiet. A storm cloud this afternoon brought in a few Hirundines: about 20 Swallows and a couple of Sand Martins. (Aidan Brown had several hundred Sand Martins, plus 1 House Martin and a couple of Swallows on Monday). Otherwise, a Raven was the pick of an unexceptional bunch.
