I decided to do my bird surveys in the evening this week (the protocol states that 2/10 visits can be evening visits). There were five Nightingales on the reserve at Woods Mill, one up on last year (if they all hang around!). There may be three Reed Bunting territories too but I'm still not sure. There was a Cuckoo late on and some large Noctule type bats. I also saw a Scorched Carpet and a few Shoulder-stripe moths. This evening I went to Filsham Reedbed, there was one Nightingale there, good numbers of Cetti's Warblers and Reed Warblers. I flushed a couple of Snipe but they were not behaving territorially. I heard a Whimbrel fly over but I could not see it.
