Dawn chorus
May 2 @ 15:25 – 16:25

 8 people managed to get up to hear the dawn chorus at 0500hrs over the weekend. Birds seemed slightly different to last year, such as more Blackcaps and fewer marsh tits. A brief view was had of a Tawny owl again and Grey wagtails put on a splendid show as we got back to the car park. It was then off to ‘The Kennels’ for coffee or tea and bacon butties splendidly put on by Louise.
