A bright sunny start to the morning with a temperature of 11°C on Harden Moor where it was good to hear and see a Garden Warbler singing. Whitethroats were busy collecting food for their young as were Willow Warblers. Others seen were Goldfinch, Skylark, Dunnock and Song Thrush.
A short drive to the other side of the Moor and the Coppice Pond at St Ives were conditions were as described earlier with a dozen Tufteds on the water. A pair of Mute Swans had seven cygnets, others here were Moorhen and Coal Tit.
