When we arrived a nightingale could be heard and throughout the trip we heard a minimum of 5 but there were probably many more. It seemed a very good spot for them and I even watched one beating a caterpillar to death on a branch!! Great stuff!
The tall scrub seemed alive with blackcaps, Common Whitethroat, Garden Warbler and long tailed tits as well as the nightingales.
Into the wood there was a small pond with thick vegetation around it and several Downy Emeralds (I think?) were patrolling the water. As they didn’t land I had to get flight shots to ID them from which was tricky but got enough I think:
More birding tomorrow as I am a free man now, no exams left!!!
