Stockbridge continued -got to the Reserve much later than Mark in the morning. In addition to his species list, I heard a brief outburst of a Grasshopper Warbler literally for a few seconds. Also a Peregrine Falcon circled overhead. Close to the gardens, Goldcrest was singing and a pair of Reed Warblers kept bringing in food to their nest site.
