There are lots of young birds now being fed on the wing, these include Robins, Great Tits, Mistle Thrush, and Great Spotted Woodpecker.  In addition, Treecreepers and Nuthatches are feeding at the nest sites.  On the Glen Road at least six male Willow Warblers and three male Reed Buntings were singing.  Two Whitethroats were in full song, a pair of Curlew were very vocal and Dunnocks and Linnets were also noted.
