Good Friday

Good to be on the Hills before the hordes descended!

Had cracking views of a 'showy' Lssr Whitethroat singing about 200yds up from the S bend with Sue and Chris and a little later similar views of a garden Warbler near the car park.

Butterflies were on the wing early and soon saw Dukes, Grizzled Skippers and Green H/streaks in the gully area alongside the road below the S bend which also had a singing Lssr W/throat

Later watched the single BLACK TERN at Startops and listened to Reed and Sedge Warblers in the reedbed at Marsworth and 'scoped' a singing Cuckoo in a tall tree there.
