One noticeable feature of today was the Lapwings feeding right by the road where (due to pollution) the thaw is most noticeable. This time last year Lapwings were on eggs whereas now they are struggling to find food. Twite and Cranes were again a noticeable feature today with migration probably peaking now and Snow Buntings are also still on the move.
I visited a site where Three-toed Woodpeckers were seen yesterday and had great views of a drumming female – this species is always a struggle to find but maybe I now have a breeding site.
I also had my first butterflies with Small Tortoiseshell (neslesommerfugl) and Camberwell Beauty (sørgekåpe) on the wing.
