Saturday 21st May

Rather quiet so I strayed off the beaten track a little and checked the field out to the west of the reservoir. I was hoping for Grasshopper Warbler but it is probably a little late in the year – that is if there are any in the area!. I did get Garden Warbler which is normally a bird that I turn up in August on return passage. I found breeding Reed Bunting today and saw a Kestrel which have been few are far between this year, I suspect they have suffered more than most with two hard winters on the bounce!

I fully expect the predicted storm that is due to hit Sunday/Monday will play havoc with the nesting Gt Crests hopefully it will hit further north than predicted.
