Stockbridge Reserve (members only) - 2 singing Whitethroat, 3 Garden Warblers on or near the reserve, 3 Blackcap. Interestingly, the pair of Kestrels spent the morning defending their box against three separate female Goosanders. The Goosanders also tried both the old Kestrel box and the Stock Dove nest box.
Yesterday, a single Brambling was seen.
