The REED BUNTING was still singing well from the island, I haven't noticed a female here yet whereas the other territories have certainly had females in the vicinity. Another lone WILLOW WARBLER sang from a Silver Birch by the lake. The wood had most of the usual suspects apart from Marsh Tit and I kept an ear out for Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers as Stephen had possibly recorded 4 individuals over the weekend!
Once out in the open a MEADOW PIPIT flew north and I only heard 1 SKYLARK this morning but it did feel much windier out here. Despite the wind though, the NIGHTINGALE was actually singing a bit more than yesterday, and as I finished up I heard a SWALLOW go over again heading north.
