We continued our walk along the edge of the Loe pool and found that many summer migrants had already arrived, Reed warblers singing from the reeds and above us Sand martins and Swallows hawking insects. With the scent of early wild flowers we were treated to the drumming sound of a Greater spotted woodpecker busy in Degibna wood, also Blackcap, chiffchaff, Song thrush, Blackbird, Robin, and Chaffinch all in full song.
Further on and with a change in habitat along Carminowe creek brought a change in sound which included both the Willow and Sedge warblers.
All who came along on the day got to experience a beautiful May morning and the stunning bird life around the Penrose estate. For more information about Dawn Chorus walks, go to the Trust's website and look in the events listings.
