Dunstable STW

17th Apr:

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.

16th Apr:

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.
