   Lets go see if there are any migrant breeders in at the Forest of Dean!!!!????

   We started at Nagshead RSPB. We walked only about 50 yards and a male Pied Flycatcher flew in front of us and landed on the track, it then flew up into the trees and fed around the field. We were told that there were some Redstarts by the Lower hide, so we walked towards it. Another male Pied Flycatcher, and a Redstart calling, but i didnt get to see it!

  After the time spent at Nagshead, we decided to head for Cannop ponds, where the Garganey had still been showing really well. Still 3 of the 4 anyway. 2 Drakes and the Duck, this time the light was a bit better for photos.




    I returned to the car, only to find a Tree Pipit singing in the plantation on the other side of the road. Didnt manage any photos though.

   Only disappointment today was the discovery of a Woodchat Shrike near Chew. Which obviously i couldnt get to.... will it be there tomorrow???
