Moving to sunny Wales

Unfortunately I won't be able to continue this blog for the foreseeable future because I've got a wonderful job in Wales!

Last week I had some great cuckoo sightings including seeing 3 at once, and this one.

9th June 2010 Sightings

I went over to a different area of the park from my usual today looking for the dartford warblers. I didn't see any but will keep looking. I know, as a species, they found the cold winter really tough. However i did see several whitethroats singing from the middle of bushes and a reed bunting. They are both new birds for me in Sutton Park this year!

I think it must be a good year for great spotted woodpeckers as I'm finding lots of their nest holes.

Also sighted today, the ever elusive blackcap. One day I will get a photo!

Rather busy this week and next week so not having the opportunities I would like to go birding.
Managed a dog walk and short birding stop this morning:
Willow warbler
Garden warbler
Great spotted woodpecker
Long tailed tits
And more!

On a brief dog walk this morning heard an intense cheeping from a mature oak. While searching for the source a great spotted woodpecker flew in and revealed the location of it's nest. Fabulous!
