6th May 2007

A quick wonder around the circuit today hoping to stop for the likes of Tree Pipit, Redstart, Pied & Spotted Flycatchers as well as Wood Warblers.

None of the above were seen! It appears that we're back to normal after a few weeeks of early arrivals during April, with St.Ives lagging behind everywhere else for migrants of course!

Cuckoo Nest Wood -
typical species such as Blackcap, Chiffchaff, Nuthatch were all seen

Coppice Pond -
The pair of Tufted Duck are still hanging around but no sign of breeding yet

Heather Park -
plenty of Meadow Pipits and Willow Warblers but no Tree Pipit, yet.

Two Barns Area -
no sign of the Garden Warbler heard during my last visit.

Kettlewell Res -
a male Kestrel passed overhead.
