Stockbridge Reserve (members only) - 2 singing Whitethroat, one appears now to have a mate. Pair of Bullfinch at the feeders & several Reed Buntings active in the reed bed.
The recent heavy downpours appear to have seen off both the Reed Warbler and the two Sedge Warblers. Both Blackcaps & Chiff-Chaffs were singing this morning.
