A walk along the Glen Road and around Golcar produced 12 Willow Warblers and six male Reed Buntings. Four pairs of Grey Partridge, five pairs of Curlew and a good number of Starlings feeding their broods in the fields.  In the Lapwing colony at Golcar, 20 chicks, in various stages of development were seen. A Cuckoo was calling from the Pennithorne Plantation.
