Good news……. we have the first of our nightingales back this year. Dave D reported one singing last night at the north end (near Sunnymead Lane) of Villa Wood. He also saw a Pochard duck on the Small Pond by the bridge but reports now that it has moved over to one of the fishing lakes.
This morning Mo J has heard Willow Warblers, Cetti’s Warblers, Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps singing. They also have Sand Martins and House Martins at the farm, so you may see them flying low around the Scrape area catching insects. The sunshine this morning has also brought out the Peacock butterflies and the Brimstone Butterfly.
