Mist first thing cleared by 9.00 am,then sunny and warm until the early afternoon when cloud and rain swept in.My morning was spent mainly counting and photographing the Nightingales.I found 4 singing over the east side of the railway line (1 on the edge of the sunken marsh) with 3 around the banks of Abbey Mead and in the Country Park I found 14 singing birds.

A Sedge Warbler was singing in the (sw corner) of Brookland lake and 4 Swallows were seen over Abbey Mead lake.Still no Turtle Doves,a Cuckoo was in the sunken marsh area.

I had a quick look in at Alders lake at 1630,to see if any Terns were about,I didn`t see any Terns but I did see my first Swifts (two) of the spring.Also one Nightingale was singing on the north bank of the (Little Lunsford lake) making 19 for the day.
