Patch update 15/05/08

I went for a walk last night on the Loxley Valley, highlights including:

  • Pair of lapwing at Old Wheel Farm, the male displaying.
  • Sparrowhawk over Old Wheel Dam area.
  • Singing bullfinches heard at Old Wheel Dam.
  • Male blackcap on the path between the bowling green and Rowell Bridge.
  • Singing garden warbler (a year tick), blackcap, chiffchaff and willow warbler on path south of river, plus an agitated great spotted woodpecker.

No signs of any spotted flycatcher though!

  1. There seem to be a lot of garden warblers about this year… or maybe I’m just getting better at distinguishing their song from that of blackcaps!

    Either way, I heard 3 or 4 around Agden Reservoir last Sunday.
