Andy M took an early morning walk around Granta Park. The field of Cowslip at the site entrance, and the Cherry blossom were a real spectacle in the spring sunshine, and the woods were turning a verdant green as the trees come into leaf. Chiffchaff, Blackcap and Wren were all singing.
Around the lake a pair of Mute Swan were feeding, as was a Grey Heron, and Reed Bunting were busy singing and pairing up in the reedbed. Unusually, a Sedge Warbler was also heard singing from deep in the reeds, not a species that Andy had heard there before, and likely a bird just passing through on the way to a larger reedbed.
