Report on trip to Whisby Nature Park – 15th May 2018

Six members attended this visit on a gorgeous sunny day, targeting species like Nightingale, Garden Warbler and Med Gull.


Within Ten minutes a Med Gull was spotted in the water bathing next to the islands by the visitor center.

A Nightingale was sighted and the same corner as last year next to the Coot Lake

path, with great views for all to enjoy, along with fabulous surround sound serenade, added to this were good sightings of Blackcaps, Garden Warblers, Willow Warblers and Whitethroats from around the site.

Having done a full circuit of the woodland this year, a good number Garden Warblers and Willow Warblers were


noted. Other birds spotted: Greylag Geese with chicks, Coot, Black Headed Gull, Mallard, Wren,Cormorant, Tufted Duck, Moorhen, Swallow, Woodpigeon, Sand Martin, Lapwing also birds heard Robins, Chaffinch, Blue Tit, Chiffchaff, Dunnock, Pheasant and Great Tit.

Yet again this year it was decided to drop into RSPB Langford Lowfields reserve on our way back. The highlight here was yet again as last year, watching up to four plus Hobbies hawking for dragonflies.
