At Titchwell, a Siskin awaits its turn to use the feeders.
Along the Meadow trail, a few Cetti's Warbler played hide and seek from the camera and a male Chaffinch posed in the blossom.
Down in the Brecks, a Woodlark in song flight.

A Barn Swallow takes a rest from feeding in the keen easterly wind - the hirundines were keeping very low above the water taking advantage of the insects on the leeward side of the plantation.
The first Sedge Warbler of the Year for the site was keeping low at the front of the lagoon.
A pair of Blue Tit were foraging in the dead stuff above the Sedge Warbler.
A small 'charm' of Goldfinch fed alongside a pair of Linnet.
A Green Sandpiper was, suprisingly, the first this year at the site. The Whooper Swan 'on patrol' chases off a Canada Goose.
A pair of Grey Wagtail wait to feed - the male showing a black throat patch.

At Dunstable STW my earliest UK Common Cuckoo was a suprise but brief find. They were also reported from Pulloxhill and at Woodwalton Fen, Cambridgshire. The local Tufted Duck were clocking up some 'airmiles'. A partial leucistic Common Moorhen was found - one of last year's progeny.
