First Sedge

I had to pop in to town this afternoon to colour copy some maps and on my way back I thought I would have half an hour down the disused railway line and also have a look on the adjacent pool.

Straight away I could hear Willow Warbler singing and I added a further four as I walked along. I had my first Sedge Warbler of the spring singing from the reedbed in the cutting and the only other warbler I had was a singing Blackcap.

On the pool I had another Sedge moving through the reeds. Out on the water I had a pair of Great Crested Grebes, 11 Tufted Ducks and a Coot on a nest. My half hour was soon up and it was back to more report writing.
