Catching up with Migrant birds

Friday 22nd April 2016

Walks round Mancetter and Caldecote have been a bit on the quiet side Yellow wagtail at Caldecote was the only new arrival seen  locally. Numbers of Swallows, House Martins, Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps have increased over the past few days. A visit to Middleton Lakes added a few more migrant warblers Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethroat, and Sedge warbler and a ridiculously tame Wheatear.
Missed the Wood warbler at Brandon Marsh first time round but went again today and managed to see it as well a couple of Cuckoos.

Swallow, Caldecote

Wood warbler, Brandon Marsh
