Valley Visit.

Around 1430 hrs we decided to go and look for the Willow Warblers at the Manoa Valley. Sand Martins and Swallows were hawking high above the sewage tanks in numbers I estimate C20 with the Martins greatly outnumbering the Swallows.
The trees alonside the path adjacent to the sewage tanks was alive with small birds which were identified as Chiffchaff but a little way further along the path Willow Warblers in double figures were searching the trees.
The Dipper(s) today were nowhere to be seen and I have noticed in the past they go upstream through the tunnel under the main road.
Nothing else was seen except a few regular Gulls, Corvids and Tits.
Still the Willow Warbler was a year tick so up the ladder we go.
