Sunday 13th April
2 Nightingale today, one near the Brook House entrance and one still by the stile near the east scrub. Also the Whitethroat that I saw on Tuesday was refound in the same area - I managed a quick snap but it was very mobile. Other birds of note were 19 Blackcap, 12 Cettis, 11 Willow Warbler, 2 Sparrowhawk, a pair of Reed Bunting, 3 Green Woodpecker and 2 Great Spotted Woodpecker.
Also 1 Grass Snake, 1 Slow Worm, 4 Newt Efts (not sure what species they are) and 3 Water Vole, including a 'new' one at the end of the Millstream near the entrance to Brooklands Lake car park.
