21/4 - My first calling Green Woodpecker here in 2 years then same or another bird heard from cycle path at Caton. A House Martin was in a new/artificial nest singing opposite the Methodist Church in Caton. Still not had one over the house yet.

22/4 - Something I had suspected for a few years and witnessed tonight was a Kestrel attacking Bats at dusk on the estate. Actually, my first Kestrel record here this year. One then usually roosts near the Bat colony awaiting a meal during the summer months!

Cheers
