A sunny day on the Levels:
The bitterns were booming, but I didn't see any inspite of a long vigil. However I had a fantastic view of a marsh harrier and watched some great hobby aerial acrobatics.

The hobbies are back and that is a sure sign that summer is almost upon us. A cuckoo was heard for the first time this year also, and could be seen perching a long way off in a willow tree. Some parents already had young such as the great-crested grebe and the graylag geese.

Another sign of the new season was the warblers: chiff-chaff, willow warblers, Cetti's warblers and whitethroats singing their various songs all day long.

Sounds as if you had a lovely day, Peter. I love your whitethroat picture I've never seen one, but then I don't get out much. I'd love to hear a bittern booming!
