two trips to longhirst flash on the 20th& 23rd april produced very little in the way of birds these two lesser black backed gulls were notable and my first this year .

I often stop off at longhirst flash but so far I have not seen anything special Im sure a great white egret visited here once

I decided to stretch the site a bit and check out the woods next to
this sign

this proved to be a decent area to watch there was a bullfinch and chiff chaffs calling and also a pair of jays ill have to stop off here again to see whats about.

A visit to linton lane afterwards and managed to get my first willow warbler this year but there was very little in the way of waders on the main pond still early days.

Longhirst Flash has had more than one GWE, at least two and possibly three. I know that there were birds in consecutive years a while back.
