      Seems like some more Lesser Whitethroats have battled through the recent bad weather in SE Europe during the last few days. Two more back on territory between Aldcliffe and Ashton Hall. Let’s hope some females have also made it to help propagate this wonderful species.

      Meanwhile, three dead Black-headed Gulls visible on the edge of the breeding colony at Freeman’s Pool this morning.

        Good to hear Barrie – lots of common whitethroats but very few lessers on territory there so far this year.
        Fits in with the late arrival in recent days of house martin etc.

          Hi Barrie and Jon– how many pairs of Lesser Whitethroat (and other warblers- and where) do you reckon we have at Aldcliffe this season? I take it Lapwings have totally failed there this year? I usually keep notes but I’m away more or less all spring and summer.

          Cheers!
