An early walk to miss the showers....21/04/2012
A bright bit cold start to the day with heavy showers forecast for later in the day so I was off bright and early(ish) for a walk around Wassell Grove Fisheries. The usual Tits and Corvids were seen along with Greenfinch, Goldfinch, Swallow x2, Dunnock, Chiffchaff, Blackbird, Wren, Linnet, Starling and the stars of the walk...Blackcaps x3! Two males and one female were in the trees as I was ending my walk. I watched and listened to them for several minutes, the males were in full song and seemingly hoping to win the heart of the female. No contact was made by the two males which was surprising and it all ended amicably when one of the males left leaving the remaining pair in peace. A lovely spectacle to see and hear.
