April - we welcome our returning migrants

Returning migrants gave a welcome boost to the April total of 155 new birds of 21 species. 

Almost half were Blackcap (76), a long way ahead of Chiffchaff at 11. The only Lesser Whitethroat was at Tythebarns, Whitethroat (4) and Willow Warbler (3) at Wraysbury, and Garden Warbler (3) at Bedfont and Wraysbury.

Some early-season finches featured Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Goldfinch and Linnet.
