Bird Watching in Ellenbrook Fields

From Tony Bristow

“On my walk round Ellenbrook Fields yesterday the bluebells in home wood were looking spectacular

and the bird were in full song. A lot of the spring migrant are coming in now. I heard or saw Buzzard, Pheasant,

Skylark, Willow warbler, Chiffchaff, Blackcap and at least 14 singing Whitethroats setting up their territories.

A pair of Swans are setting up home on the lake. The next few weeks we should see the arrival of Swallows​​ 

and House Martins. It is always a good walk even if you don’t know the birds just enjoy their singing”.

 

“Monday 27th April Update on a walk around Ellenbrook Fields.

More and more warblers are coming in, as well as the Whitethroats singing, several Blackcaps and chiffchaffs​​ are in full song and the highlight for me was to hear a Garden​​ Warbler singing from the middle a bush which​​ is their normal hiding position.​​ 

A Jay and a Stock Dove with several Chaffinches singing in Home Wood with​​ 

two Buzzards and a Red Kite circling nearby. A Reed Bunting was singing near the pond and a Little Grebe was​​ on the pond.

​​ There is always something interesting to see or hear plus butterflies are on the wing with​​ wildflowers​​ now starting to bloom”.
