The Millenium Park - Saturday

A fairly quiet day on the MVCP on Saturday:

1 White Wagtail - sailing club lawn 8.30am

At least 20 Willow Warblers heard singing around park, I'd guess there was probably double that present.

Several Blackcaps singing around park.

2 C Terns on Stewartby Lake in the afternoon. Also 1 heard on lake this morning from my parents garden.

1 Red Kite seen over Stewartby tip at 3.50pm.

1 Oystercatcher seen between sewage works and Stewartby Lake about 4.30pm. Again also heard this morning over lake from my parents garden.

Another or the same White Wagtail seen from Jubilee Cottages overview at 5.55pm.

Gropper heard from path around 200 yards from Jubilee Cottages overview well about 6.30pm.

No hirundines seen all day...
