A very, very, brief visit to the the meadow pond and field this evening

2 singing Reed Warblers -one wearing a metal BTO ring on its right leg.
Surprisingly, no sound of any Groppers or Sedges.

Not seen at Chorlton Ees but have been noted on Barlow Tip at Chorlton Water Park.


Supposed to be a good area to see Willow Tit also at Chorlton Ees although I've not recorded any yet!
