Attenborough 28/04/2013

April 28, 2013 in Holiday and Trip Reports by Jim Steele

Summer Visitors (birds and people) swarming in now. Lots of Sedge Warblers and Whitethroats, Blackcaps and a few Reed Warbler. Best views I have ever had of Cetti’s Warbler singing on top of a bush next to the car park! A flock of over fifty newly-arrived Swifts faced the stiff breeze over the River Trent, whilst over the far ridge a couple of Buzzards and a male Sparrowhawk also hung in the moving air. A pair of Wigeon still on the pits and a Shelduck. Grebes and Cormorants nest-building. Four Little Ringed Plovers and a Greenshank were of note. Best of all were four Yellow Wagtails (I never get tired of the colour of ‘Yellow Wags’) and my favourite Summer Visitor of all – a stunning male Whinchat.
