Getting ready for the Dawn Chorus
I had a quick recce around the park between 04:45 and 05:15 this morning in preparation for Thursday's walk. Didn't see a lot because it was quite a dull and overcast morning, but what a chorus!
What I did see this morning were Blackbird, Starling, Carrion Crow, Magpie, Robin and Mistle Thrush. I heard lots but was particularly pleased to recognise a Blackcap, because I only learnt its banging-two-stones-together call on last Tuesday's dawn chorus walk with Chris along Waterlink Way.
