Eccleston Mere

Was it worth getting to the mere at 5am? You tell me....

Lots of warbler song, Whitethoats (4), Blackcap (6), Willow Warbler (4) and Chiffchaff (2), and several Reed Buntings as well as various commoner woodland species joining in the chorus. Nothing new though, and almost birdless on the water except for two Tufted Ducks and about 10 Great crested Grebes. At least I can say that there was no sign of the Little Ringed Plover this morning, though I suppose it could be getting there even earlier now that the mornings continue to get lighter. I'll leave that pleasure for somebody else!
