The Grasshopper Warbler seen and heard yesterday is still in the same spot, though more elusive.  It is calling from tall grasses near the wall that runs from the 11th fairway to the running track.  A Cuckoo is calling from trees near the cabins at Pennythorn and three Wheatears were also seen in the area.
