One of the newly arrived Whitethroats
Down at the lake a Grey Wagtail was in the ditch opposite the pumping station and a Mistle Thrush was in the sheep field.
At the lake a Reed Warbler was singing from the southern end and three Cuckoos were present ( 2 males and a female) and I was delighted to find a Nightingale(87) singing on the Shirrenden side.
A pair of Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers were in the alders behind Lake Cottage.
A single Mandarin drake was present.
This afternoon the Nightingale had moved behind Lake Cottage where I also saw two Marsh Tits.
Yesterday I managed to photograph a pair of Orange Tips.
