It was my first day at Bosmere this year, and the Great-crested Grebe pair have had 4 chicks this year. They have all fledged and are feeding on the lake alone with their Mum and Dad. A shock when I got there though was when a Blackcap was mimicking Nightingale. I thought that this was a actual bird singing, but no. Reed Warblers were back again this year, with a male singing. Lots of Mistle Thrushes have congregated on the patches farm this year, so obvious breeders.
TOTAL OF BIRD SPECIES FOR 2012 = 158
