An early morning walk before the tourists arrive. It is like Blackpool around here especially at weekends best avoided!
Despite a cool cloudy start a respectable 33 species were recorded with many in full song.
Song Thrush 10 singing
Mistle Thrush 2 pairs
Treecreeper 3 singing
GSW 2, 1 drumming
Tawny Owl mobbed adjacent to cycle path
Very few waterbirds around probably due to high recent river levels.
