• News has emerged about a singing Pallas's Leaf Warbler in the 'NARVOS' Recording area, which was suppressed (for whatever reason) and has apparently now gone. Also same observers have had Willow Tit in the same recording area.
• Chinese Pond Heron found dead on 25th March, Hythe, Kent, which although sad, may now confirm it's ID, well maybe!
• Titchwell RSPB Warden Paul Eele has added a nice list today on Birdforum which includes: Little-ringed Plover, 2 Sandwich Terns,
3 Common Terns, 2 Whimbrel, 3
House Martins, 1 Willow Warbler singing, Bittern and Nuthatch. Note that Paul adds the highlights at the reserve every day (when he's there) on the Norfolk thread on Birdforum.
• Swallow also seen at Cley today.
