Castlemartin Corse

3 sedge and 1 grasshopper warbler early this morning, the latter reeling about midway between the hide and the pine clump. Willow warbler, blackcap and chiffchaff all singing away around the former decoy ponds by the pines. Raptors - female kestrel, female merlin and 2 buzzards. The remaining 40 summer-plumaged golden plover which were still in the same spot as before two days ago now seem to have gone.

Reed warbler singing in the reedbed below the Court Site terrace.
