Thursday 13th May

A couple of Whitethroats singing along Gallagher's Gallop this morning, including one in the hedgerow near Kiln Barn Farm - it seems to have been a good year so far for these birds on my patch.  I paid a long overdue visit to Ditton Quarry at lunchtime, a few Blackcaps and Whitethroats but really quite quiet. 

A toad and a Holly Blue were the only other sightings of note.

I've also noticed that Whitethroats are becoming more prolific. In Cornwall, I found them everywhere.

Adam ,
So it was Common Whitethroats all round yesterday then .
I agree , it's seems to be a really good year for them all over .

Looks like you made that toad blush! :-)
