More signs of Spring

Last Friday there were no hirundines around Branton Ponds ,what a difference a week makes.Today the ever increasing numbers of Sand Martins and Swallows were joined by at least 10 House Martins,Common Sandpipers patrolled the waters edge but even better was whilst scanning a small flock of Meadow Pipits we came across a very dapper looking Yellow Wagtail.
Spring may have been held back by the bad weather of past weeks,but it has now burst onto the scene like a cork removed from a botle of champagne.
