Three more singing NIGHTINGALES

Two COMMON NIGHTINGALES are back in last year's territories just east of Sandy, near the Everton - Swaden road. They started their competition today at 8:15 pm and are both audible from the metal gate, where the Greensand ridge walk enters the sheep pasture on Sand Lane (one based at TL18364973 ("Dame's orchard"), the other one in the overgrown clearing at TL18514941) (Johannes Kamp). A further bird is in Cople.
