Early morning at the DWT reserve at Willington Gravel Pits produced just 8 Black-tailed Godwit of note.  
They very quickly departed after about an hours stay, heading off west.  The first gatherings of young Blue & Great Tits were noticeable in the hedgerows. Still a variety of common warblers singing. A few Buzzard were on the wing and there were many swifts feeding over the pools.
At Newton Solney several Goosander on the river  and a pair of Mute Swan with cygnets. Also came across a Green Sawfly – ~Rhogogaster viridis – a new insect for me. I can’t say I’ve every seen a Sawfly before. Thanks to the various people who pointed me in the direction of Sawfly species.
