Broadwater GP - 27 May2012

We decided to venture to Broadwater and find out how the breeding birds were progressing. The morning was already very warm by 6am and the substrate none the softer in the late May sunshine. The site was ringing with bird song, much delivered from way,way up above the height of the nets, but there was the hope that young birds would be foraging and adults feeding young so we gave it a go.

Highlights were pairs of Garden Warbler, Blackcap and Chaffinch, Juvenile Dunnock, Blackbird and Long Tailed Tit and a couple of Jays. The catch was broadly representative of what was seen and heard around the site.

Dunnock - 2
