Soil Hill Sedge Warbler

Against the odds at 1015 hrs a Sedge Warbler was singing and displaying from a bush some 120 yards from where the earth has been ripped up by the excavators. I hope it moves on as it will only take a few days for the machinery to reach it's would be breeding site.

A Snipe was also seen at close quarters in the area along with 2 m Reed Bunting, a Red-legged Partridge, a Moorhen on the pond and this Oystercatcher.

A pr Curlew were on the top field along with the Meadow Pipits & Skylarks and a pr Swift were flying around with a few Swallows.
Others include Lapwings, Linnets, pr Dunnock, 6 Blackbird, 1 LBBG but no Whitethroats.
