Took a trip over to Rodley Nature Reserve today as
I love it there, first birds spotted were all firsts for this year,
Swallow, Swift and Cetti's Warbler which is a lifer for me and
what a noise it makes for such a small bird, couldn't get a pic
though as it was very jittery and in deep bushes full of leaves,
also Red Kite was flying overhead and 2 Shovellers that I haven't
seen there before and plenty of Willow Warblers and Tern.
A Grasshopper Warbler was seen there too but not by me as it was
on other side of lake.
Garden was busy with Goldfinch & Chaffinch with a few Dunnock
dropping in and my regular Collared Doves a Kestrel hovering in
back field and a Sparrowhawk flypast and a couple of Blackbirds
and a Jay.
