Last few days – A Cetti’s Warbler has been singing for 3 consecutive days in the E lake reeds area. Yesterday there were 50+ Sand Martin over the lakes plus a couple of House Martin. Today just a single Swallow and Sand Martin. The Kingfisher was sitting outside the nest bank on E lake, same place as on 12th Apr. The Coot’s nest at the dragonfly pond was devoid of life as was the pond itself. Can’t help thinking the nest was predated. Very quiet on the small bird front due to the strong cold wind.
Interesting sight on W lake where an occupied Mute Swan nest is within a couple of feet of an occupied Gt Crested Grebe nest [far side of W lake].
