Shipley Glen
A Wood Warbler was singing in the Glen this morning and there was lots of activity from other species including Treecreepers, Jays, Great Spotted Woodpeckers, Nuthatches, Blackcaps and Willow Warblers.

For the third day running there was a female Wheatear passing through the area between Golcar Farm and the Golf Course.  A Whitethroat was singing near Crook Farm and the area was alive with the sounds of Willow Warblers.
