Great Expectations

Had them.

A cycle to West Hartford mid afternoon blew the cobwebs of early shift away, but there wasn't too much to see. While migrants appear to have arrived on the coast, little has penetrated inland - so it'll have to be another visit before I find a ring ouzel next to the upside down bath...

Barn swallow were evident, with probably 10 whizzing around the somewhat enlarged pool - recent rainfall has made WH rather wetter than average - potentially good for later in the spring. Two mute swan were new, while shelduck remain at 5. Grey partridge are particularly vocal as of late.

Prestwick Carr has a multitude of waders - WH managed none today!

Maybe there will be some later?
