A singing Coal Tit sparked things off, it being my first ever record away from winter. Juvenile Goldcrest, Great-spotted Woodpecker and then a patch year-tick in the form of a Jay. The old Pitch and Putt course held the real gem though, a Willow Warbler. Surprisingly a patch first for me. Well, perhaps not so surprising if you consider that this was my first for the year. Why it took so long I don't know.
So that, coupled with three year-ticks at Rainham yesterday, I think we can safely call the slump off.... for now.
