What unusual hot sunny weather we are experiencing at the moment, could this be the reason we are getting a seemingly increase of birds returning. Plenty of Grasshopper warblers, a good show of Cuckoos and everything else as well, it is still april! My trip to Fingringhoe Wick wasn't disappointing either. The Nightingales were everywhere again, competing with each other nonstop with their mesmerising strong variegated melodious song, what power! Actually they drove me mad in the end I had to get away, I jest. Wonderful day, could have stayed longer.
