W/C 26thApril to 1 May

27th – Bratton to Whitecross

Walking with a non-birdwatching group.  Heard Blackcap, Chiffchaff and Green Woodpecker.  Swallows on the wire by the old Manor House at Bratton (by Stinky Lane).

29th – Ellicome to Alcombe

Walking with a non-birdwatching group.  Good view of Blackcap singing.  Heard Song Thrush, Chiffchaff and Green Woodpecker.

1st May – Nutcombe Bottom to Bats Castle circuit.

Heard my first Cuckoo and saw 2 Yellowhammers, also Song Thrush, Stonechat, Willow Warbler and Buzzards (both settled).  Heard Raven and Chiffchaff as well as other usual suspects.  Yellowhammers’ song not perfect, I think they need more practise “eese” was muted.
