So the first one of the year always puts a smile on my face. This one was late morning at Ulgham Lane.
I'd started off at Bothal Pond, although NF beat me to it, though it was quiet. I aborted the plan to head for Linton after talking to Nigel as he had had only three Willow Warbler, so instead a good beat around Woodhorn produced a migrant flock of Meadow Pipit about twenty strong feeding in the rough grass. In fact apart from Mipits I had little else this morning, butterflies 2 & 3 for the year produced a brief splash of colour.
