First spring migrants.

Spring officially started yesterday as far as Cheshire's birding fraternity were concerned with the arrival of three Garganey at Burton Marsh! Two drakes and a duck. Very early but very welcome.

Even though the first spring migrants have officially arrived the wintering ones are still very much in evidence as more of the weekends photo's show below:
