Light overcast to start,sunny and warm later.
As is to be expected at this time of the year,both Brookland lake and Abbey Mead were very quite this morning.Just five cygnets and their parents on Brookland and four Coot and two Great Crested Grebes on Abbey Mead.Lots of young tits were flying around,Great Blue and Long-tailed.One Garden Warbler was singing on the edge of the Sunken marsh and a Cuckoo was calling from the overhead wire there.Along the river I saw,four Shelduck,six Mallard and at least seven juvenile Grey Herons trying out their fishing skills.
On the Nightingale front,I heard five in the Brookland/Abbey Mead area,with a further seven to the west of the railway line.I watched one pair taken food to their nest.
