Trickling through..

            It's certainly more a trickle than a flood but the summer migrants are slowly arriving at the reservoirs. Two House Martins fed with 30-plus Sand Martins over West Warwick yesterday while Pete L had singing Willow Warbler between No 2 and No 3 today as well as the first Common Tern through high north over Lockwood. Even better was his Reed Warbler singing on the east side of No 2 this afternoon which appears to be one of the first in London. There was plenty of excitement further south on the patch with Ring Ousel. My sole contribution - before I defected to Rainham - was a Redshank on East Warwick which at least stayed around for others to add to their year list. The Common Sandpiper which GH had yesterday - along with a Wheatear - was also seen today by Pete.
