Bird Watching (Thursday) – May meeting

Two new sites for us last month were Sence Valley Forest Park and LRWT’s Kelham Bridge, both just outside Ibstock in North West Leicestershire.  The usual array of warblers at both sites, plus swifts and hirundines.  Cuckoo was heard several times in both places, but unfortunately not seen.  Seen but not heard was a willow tit at Kelham and this, not a particularly common bird any more, was probably the day’s highlight for most of us.
