Yes, I was getting worried that the Ingrebourne Valley hadn't had any Whinchat this year. I'm like anybody who watches a patch, Whinchat is a bird that you should/hope to get on your patch. What made it worst was that Wanstead Flats and Barking Bay are getting them so why not the valley?. So today was the day when 2 Whinchat graced the top paddock, which isn't a surprise! They are always found there, but just a bit late this year.
