Spring as come to Brascote GP
Well, I was up early this morning -well early for me on a Saturday! It was a fairly clear night so I thought something might have dropped in at my patch at Brascote. Nothing of note over the North pool, so had a walk over to the other lagoons. It wasn't long before my mate Pete Asher, who had joined me on my early morning jaunt, picked up a little burst of song from a Willow Warbler - first of the year for us. Carrying on to the bottom track we picked up another Spring first, with a singing Blackcap. So it was back to the car and home for brekki, but not before a last quick scan over the North pool where we found 3 Swallows hawking for insects, so all in all, not a bad couple of hours!
