Friday 28 April. Megan needed to visit the KIA garage in Washington and after we went to Greatham. I wasn't sure where the Ring Ouzel had been seen but thought it was worth going over being that close. Ads Bowley's car parked by a footpath was a welcome clue and the male Ring Ouzel was still present, if a little distant. On a circuit of Waltham Brooks we saw Nightingale, 2 Grey Wagtails, 2 Stonechats, 2 Cetti's Warblers and Sedge and Reed Warblers. Later I made the mistake of going to Arlington arriving to find the Red-rumped Swallow had gone. The Osprey didn't show either having been sat on a pylon just before I arrived and seen fishing before and after. A slight diversion to West Mill, Small Dole on my way home was more successful with 3 Turtle Doves, Nightingale and Lesser Whitethroat.
