Spent a couple of hours in the rain after work today...
Stunning Red-backed shrike (male) in the mire dean, about level with the second pole down from the top at 6pm. Spotted flycatcher 5 around the boathouse/bottom of the mire dean. Redstart 1m 1f around tree guards near boathouse, Garden warbler 1 near boathouse, Lesser whitethroat 1 near boathouse, Willow w 14 ML/MD, Chiff 5 ML/MD, Blackcap 1 singing by boardwalk, Whitethroat 7 ML/MD area, Little Grebe 2 (one at either end of the ML calling).
Unfortunately I didn’t have the DSLR with me so the best I could manage was some crappy record shots with the compact. Hopefully get some better photos tomorrow.
