Constantine: New birds for the year have been rolling in over the past three weeks since I last wrote. The local farmer ploughing has produced fifteen plus Buzzards and for the list Common and Lesser black backed Gulls.

Also added Mallard, Linnet, House Sparrow, Collared Dove, Stock Dove and Chiffchaff.

Total now 53.

The female Raven has been on the nest in the Monterey pine for three weeks now and I expect signs of young any day. Last year they failed. I hope with another year’s experience they will succeed this time. (Tim Pinfield)

Feock: Lucky enough to be taking the washing in when a Red Kite flew over! Please add Chiffchaff to my total, making 27. (Bec Penny)
