This evenings visit to West Hartford was enlightened by the presence of a new Cramlington bird species...
A single bird was initially heard singing from the A192 near the West Hartford farm buildings... then Gordon called to say he could hear one, if not two from the road end to the east of the pools!
A Cramlington birders "semi-twitch" ensued, resulting in a count of 2 to 4 birds singing.
All the birds can easily be heard from the roadside / business park road. There is no need to walk into the fields. If you walk in the field you will not see them, so don't bother!!!! (Please, there is enough hassle for the breeding reed bunting, sky lark, meadow pipit, grey partridge etc from the fox and dog walkers that frequent the area... size 10 boots need not venture on a fruitless mission......)
A great result for the patch.
A great start to the weekend.
Saturday morning update: Already the infamous mp3 player has been and failed. Why bother????
