Dawn chorus walk
On Thursday 20th of April we had our annual dawn chorus walk, this year led by Steve Piotrowski. Despite it being a cold and grey morning we saw or heard a total of 40 bird species during the two hour walk. The bird of the morning was an early Hobby, a summer migrant raptor which feeds on dragonflies and small birds. We also saw two buzzards, four little egrets and good numbers of linnets. The full species list is below. Many thanks to Steve for an interesting and entertaining morning. An adder was seen basking, later in the day when the sun appeared.
