I was out between 8:am-10:am. the weather continues warm and dry,although there was more cloud today.
Walking around this morning I noticed that there was still quite a lot of bird song Whitethroat,Reed Warbler,Chiffchaff,Blackcap,Garden Warbler,Cetti`s Warbler,Willow Warbler,Song Thrush and Blackbird.Along the river I noted 4 Cormorant,1 Oystercatcher,2 Stock Dove,6 young Heron and a flock of 15 Lapwing (probably part of the late summer returning movements).The Shelduck brood was seen but I could only see 5,originally there were 8.The river path through the hawthorns held 4 juvenile Lesser Whitethroat,2 Bullfinch,a family party of Nightingale and a mixed Tit flock consisting of Great,L T T and Blue,a Jay was also seen.Crossing over the railway I had a a very quick sighting of a Hobby over the east scrub and on the way back along the millstream a juvenile Green Woodpecker was seen along with 2 more Nightingale,1 Garden Warbler and a Sparrowhawk.
