14th August

I am sorry for the lack of bird news recently, there has been a lot going on at work recently. I am off to Suffolk for until Friday afternoon, hoping to finally set foot on the RSPB’s Minsmere reserve. With a bit of luck there will be something of interest for me to find, maybe a;

If not one of the above or something of equal rarity status then a good range of species will do.

Today in the park saw.

Common Whitethroat: 12 birds in areas 31, 32 and 39.

Blackcap: 18 birds present in those areas with brambles or elderberries.

Reed Warbler: 4 birds at the end of the lake in area 34.

Willow Warbler: 8 birds in area 32.

Chiffchaff: 12 birds in area 31 and 32.

Grey Wagtail: 2 birds in area 1 by the rearing pond.

If you should visit the park and see something of interest could you please leave me the details in the comments section.

                  Thank you
