Really good to hear a Nightingale singing it’s head off in the hedge along the Mill Stream this morning. What was quite odd was a Reed Warbler singing quietly in a thin stretch of Reeds along the floodline at Rye Farm. Apparently there was a big influx of Reed Warblers into the country overnight. Six White-fronted Geese still on the Levels seen from the gate on the Downslink in the field adjoining the Heronry field. There were six Little Egrets in the trees and possibly three Grey Herons sitting on nests.
