The weather was fantastic today at the Ingrebourne Valley with glorious sunshine, it's nice to go birding without the layers of clothing which I've had to wear lately. So I wasn't surprised to find a Adder out catching the rays to, in there usual spot. That's the first one of the year for me. I checked another area of the site for more Adders but could not find anymore, but did have 9 Crossbill go over calling whilst there. That's my only second record of Crossbill here, the other record was just a single bird a couple of years ago. Also seen were Little Egret, 9 Wigeon, Bullfinch and 3 Snipe.
