After all this rain we been having had a dry afternoon on tuesday so headed to Stewartby Lake where despite all the mud a very worthy walk with warblers singing all around with espically high numbers of Willow Warblers and Blackcaps with Whitethroats and Garden Warblers thrown into the mix, also quite a few finches with flocks of Goldfinches and chaffinches around and 1 lovely male Bullfinch. On the lake had a Common Scoter out on the lake though distance and 2 Common Terns overhead fishing. On returning in the woods heard a Cuckoo calling and had a goodview of at least 2 Turtle Doves they really do make such a wonderful sound.
