Hirundines at Pennington Flash

There were some torrential rain showers this afternoon, and even a short ferocious thunderstorm with hail stone, but in between it was quite a pleasant day for a bike ride! It was well worth the effort, there were 40+ sand martins over the flash, my first this year, and even better a single house martin, my earliest ever in the UK and my first ever in March. Other birds included two singing chiffchaffs, 13 goldeneye, 11 goosander and kingfisher.

Year: 177 (House martin, sand martin)

Sand Martins.
