Nightingales in the valley



After a very difficult week at work I needed a little birding therapy this morning without the driving so an early run over to Fishers Green gave me just the wind down I needed. The dawn chorus was in full swing as I arrived with at least three Nightingales singing and waiting for the girls to arrive. A called constantly with a female responding on occasion.

Blackcaps were present in good numbers but I failed to find any Garden Warbler. A called and a Common Whitethroat showed well as it called. Common Terns are now present and a surprise was a single first summer Little Gull from the watchpoint.

All in all a very pleasant walk and home for breakfast by 9.30am and a continuance of the wind down.
