Keith Dodd reports:-

We were delighted to see a group of 50 sand martins during the Spring bird walk on Sunday 24 April 2016. They were feeding over the river upstream from the pasture pump and were seen to be using holes in the sandy river bank.

They have nested there in the past, but not for the last 6 or 7 years.
