Saturday 3rd May

A visit between 5.30am and 7.30am this morning. A very misty and cold start but it got progressively brighter. I added my first Garden Warbler of the year on the peninsula near Brook House. Apart from that what was most noticeable were Whitethroat numbers - I counted 25 in total. Also 15 Blackcap, 8 Nightingale, 13 Reed Warbler, 2 Lesser Whitethroat, 4 Cuckoo, 2 Turtle Dove, 1 Sedge Warbler, 1 Swift, 5 Willow Warbler, 6 Chiffchaff, 7 Song Thrush, 1 Bullfinch, 2 Shelduck, 1 Water Rail, 2 Shelduck and several young Heron feeding along the Medway.


Also 2 Water Vole, one by the divers bridge and another at the end of the Millstream by the Brooklands Car park entrance.
