Clennon lakes

Warbler numbers picking up on site with 3 Yellow-browed Warblers (first in willows and Sycamore on hill side leading up to Roselands School, the 2nd by 2nd weir and the thrid on the streamside path toward the YMCA) - at least 2 of those new as none had the very striking yellow lores of one of the birds on Sunday. Also the Cetti's Warbler still present, now 4 Chiffchaff, 8 Goldcrest and 2 Blackcap. 2 Water Rail calling from reedbed, 1 Kingfisher 3 Gadwall, 1 Little Grebe and 3 Little Egrets.

Most exciting record was my first Cirl Bunting on site - a male singing for a short period down near to the YMCA!
