2nd April 06 Prescot reservoir
A grey showery day brought the first Swallow of the year for the reservoirs .It flew over our heads at 'headquarters' at 11.30 am. I had my first willow warbler singing today in no2 bed. A crow was standing guard over its mate on the nest around no3 res. 2 female pochard had joined the tufted duck. A male kestrel flew out of the pines from the same place as yesterday so a chance that they may be nesting. The gull numbers are well reduced now and today we I had
50 common gull
20 herring gull
10 black headed gull
20 lesser black backed gull
4 greater black backed gull
