First returning migrant on the scrape?  A drake Teal this morning. The bird song is becoming less obvious as the month progresses in the reserve, and the rain this morning put paid to any Butterfly/Dragonfly activity too. Grey Heron by the pond again - I hope it hasn't got it's eye on the remaining young Moorhens and Little Grebes! However, several small parties of mostly juvenile Blue and Great Tits buzzing about, as there were around my garden on the north edge of Braunton, along with a family of Pied Wagtails outside my bedroom window this morning.
