1st May 2017, passage starts at Carsington.

Today saw the start of my witnessing this years spring passage. An afternoons jaunt up to the reservoir produced brilliant views of 4 beautiful Black Terns around the gull colony on Millfields island and after a couple of hours watching them a walk round Stones after the tourists had gone saw me see a couple of Sanderling and the now full summer plumaged Great Northern Diver. A single Yellow Wag was also new for the year.
