A good walk around Stewartby Lake this morning in the early spring sunshine. Highlights included a CETTI'S WARBLER singing 100 yards north of the gull watching spot, 4 Common Chiffchaffs singing away, 2 Common Redshank, 1 Oystercatcher and a glorious Common Kingfisher. I also had a count of 7 Song Thrushes singing (Peter Smith)
