Saturday morning - first COMMON WHITETHROATS start arriving

Saturday 09 April

A Common Whitethroat was singing and showing well along the Bedford - Sandy cycle
path just east of the Willington to Great Barford road this morning.

Earlier, a showy Grasshopper Warbler was 'reeling' from a small willow just
south of the path around WL9 at Marston Vale Country Park, until 07.30 at
