May morning at CWP
1 May - After the dull cold last few days, a beautiful sunny morning and the CWP bursting with birdsong - Cuckoo calling constantly, and Warblers everywhere with Whitethroats present in large numbers, Garden Warblers have also now arrived. The highlights however were a showy Cetti's Warbler and 2 unbelievably obliging Nightingales singing out in the open. A fantastic morning at the height of the Dawn chorus season. The icing on the cake was a Greenshank on the floods at Eysey and a flyover Hobby there, my first of the year.
