So far no reports of any seabirds
Middleton Nature Reserve - main pond early afternoon
Just a quick circuit between showers.
Darters - four seen in flight. It wasn't possible to confirm the species of any of them. But one flew to the middle of pond when flushed by a Reed Bunting. Too distant to follow or see colour.
Little Grebe 1 adult
Cetti's Warbler 1 - singing vigorously from a new area. The developing bushes between the SW corner of the main pond and the hedgerow before the footpath. Not heard one singing here before, possibly the "no swimming" bird extending its territory, or perhaps a new bird. Any records of further singing or calls from this area would be appreciated.
Hopefully more later.
