Saturday April 21st

A visit between 6am and 7.20 this morning. I didn't have time for a full curcuit today but still managed to hear 8 separate Nightingale. Two were singing by the Brook House entrance, another at the top of the path to Brook House from the open area, a third heard from the round pond area over the lake towards the new housing development, a fourth by the scrape, the fifth in the east scrub, sixth half way along the path between Abbey Mead and the railway, seventh on the south east corner and and eight the south west corner of Abbey Mead. I didn't go up towards the sunken marsh which usually holds one or two.

Apart from Nightingale, heard one Cuckoo in the west scrub, one Lesser Whitethroat by the stile across the railway and several Whitethroat and Willow Warbler, the single Reed Warbler still in song at the end of the Millstream and four Cettis. Also 2 sets of young Coot and a juv. Robin near the tunnel from Brooklands car park.

Great photos - the Coots are still sitting here in Lancashire.
