Early visit to Arcot
After the end of a week of nightshift I opted to check Arcot out on my way home. It was no great suprise to hear grasshopper warbler reeling almost immediatley as the species had reach Cramlington last weekend, but the hoped for early sedge warbler did not materialise. Willow warbler and chiffchaff were a-plenty, while on the pond four mute swan, two canada goose, two great crested grebe and a single little grebe were present. A few coot loafed around the edges and wood pigeon were vocal on what was a fine, still April morning.
