More signs of spring being just round the corner this weekend – double figures of Oystercatcher now in my fields, and my first Skylark of the year on Saturday. Followed by either two birds, or two lots of two birds yesterday. (That’s confusing, isn’t it? Saw 2 together, and then later in a different place, 2 together again. Could have been the same birds, or not. They didn’t say, and I wasn’t asking).

 Made my weekly pilgrimage to the pier to check out the Eider flock – significantly fewer than last week, down by maybe 50%. Some of this dispersal might account for the all-time high count of 3 Eider on the sea below the house on Saturday. No sign of the borealis-type though.
