February 2022 was a month dominated by storms. The high winds and rainfall meant getting out birding for a lot of the visitors was a bit tricky and there were a number of trees down around the reserve for the warden team to clear. Despite the less-than-ideal conditions a good number of uncommon species were found and some early spring migrants spotted.
March should see more first migrants for the year arrive with chances of Little Ringed Plover, Sand Martin, Wheatear and who knows what else!
