Mundens Estate - 20.4.13

A later start than I wanted meant an early visit to Hilfield didn't happen but an afternoon stroll with Carey around my old local patch of the Mundens was a pleasant alternative. The warm weather brought out 4 Buzzard thermaling high overhead. At least 4 Blackcap and 4 Chiffchaff were singing and 2 RN Parakeet were inspecting a nest hole. Other scribblings in my notebook were a singing Treecreeper, a pair of Gadwall and a Mallard with 7 chicks on the pool but a Snipe that was put up by a fisherman was an embarrasingly late year tick! 2 Little Egret were a patch tick but as it was my first visit in over 2 years i'm sure I have missed other things in between.
