Weekly Bird Count

Snuck out this afternoon to get around and make a bird count for the park. 37 species on a damp miserable day doesn't seem too bad, most notably 3 Grasshopper Warbler, 2 Whinchat, a couple more Blackcap, many Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff. Yes, the summer warblers are back.
One Grasshopper Warbler did show itself briefly and as ever looked surprisingly large with that big broad tail they have. I should expect the Whinchat [#143] will perform their usual routine of hanging around for two weeks and then disappearing.
