We've reached the end of the first quarter and I've recorded 20 species by the end of March. This is not the best ever, but much better than last year when I only saw 4 species by this date. (It was the middle of May before I reached 20 species.) This morning there were 8 moths of 5 species, with Early Thorn new for the year. Yesterday I made my first visit to Grove Ferry since the flooding. The Red-crested Pochard was showing well, but a Kingfisher along the river and one Marsh Harrier were the only other interesting birds seen.
