It was nice to see a large group of Sand Martins hawking over the large lake in this group I managed to pick out a few House Martin making this my 69th species, but this was not the last new bird as I walked along the west bank I heard that distinctive song of a Blackcap so I set about finding him which I did though not just one I found three 2 males and a female. So with that my last years list of species for this site got beaten now on 70 species for the site can I make to a hundred before the year is out?
The Highlights of the walk beside the usual stuff
Sunday 17th, I headed off for another quick walk this time with my son, this time we went round the north lake . Their was a little bit of disturbance this morning from a large group of Joggers speed walkers going round the lake, but surprisingly we still managed to find a few passrines in the hedges with the best being two singing Common Whitethroats another new bird for the list now at 71 species ,two more singing male Blackcaps a calling Cetti's Warbler and a smart looking Chiffchaff. The Shelduck flew in again and settled on the pool in the field.
