Lovely warm day, plenty of birds to look at, including a distant Osprey, Hobbies, a Little Egret, a good view of a Garden Warbler, a sitting Avocet, a Grey Partridge, and lots of Red Kites, like this one.
If you sense I am galloping through rather, you are not wrong. As we left the pub I took a call from Dave. There was a hippolais warbler sp near Marsh Lane GP in deepest
So at 3.50pm Lyn and I headed home. The journey was horrendous, and it was 6.25pm before we finally got home. I had convinced myself the bird would not be showing, but Lyn encouraged me to go for it.
