There were 2 brown hares showing very well close to School Pond this morning. I noticed one nearby yesterday too; it’s really encouraging to see them hanging around.
As far as summer migrants go it’s been relatively quiet just lately from what I’ve seen on my visits. A common whitethroat was in the ‘new’ hedgerow a couple of days ago and of course chiffchaff, willow warbler and blackcaps are all in song in the Orchard. I haven’t yet heard any sedge warblers in the vicinity (one was singing by the canal yesterday and at least 3 are on territory at Freeman’s Pools) – has anyone seen or heard any around FAUNA?
