Saturday 11th July 2009
A drizzly start and a quiet morning. A few Swifts over the VC on arrival. Still a number of Blackcaps singing around the park. We had several Green Woodpecker sightings and a couple of Kingfisher sightings. Highlight of the morning was a singing Stock Dove by the Dead Seat. The Great Crested Grebes still have at least 1 humbug although I thought I saw a second during a transfer between the adults, viewing wasn't ideal though. We had Treecreeper calling in the Long Hedge on the south side of the gap. Still a lot of Reed Warbler activity in all the usual haunts but we had to wait until Fenlake before we had a singing Sedge Warbler.
