Willington today

Two Common Whitethroats seen singing during a before work walk along the old railway line at Willington GP's this morning returning via the southern path - one near the Nightingale bushes, [but no sound or sight of this species yet this year], the other near the stream along my return walk. Also plenty of Blackcaps showing, a few Willow Warblers, a couple of Chiffys and 3+ Bullfinches. A brief look at Homer's donut atoll on the main lake held a drake Wigeon, 3 R Plover sp~, 5 Teal but no Avocets... no wagtails on the sheep fields either and only 24 Barnies remaining, also 1 Oyk showing (MJP)
