This morning

28 swans in the fields at Brookside/Rye Farm, a single Lapwing,  assorted geese and a Little Egret. A crow had a go at a Raven low by the Downslink & a Cetti’s sang from the bushes at the side. Only 1 apparently occupied nest in the little heronry. East of the Downslink a Reed Bunting sang its ineffectual song, 3 Lapwings tried to mob a crow, and 5 Linnets flew up from the grass. In the wet area were 2 swans, a Coot and a couple of Greylag. Another Cetti’s sang by the gate. Near Lepride a commotion from other birds alerted  me to a Peregrine scything through the trees!
