Monday 09.04 NHGP
7.30-8.10 am Easter Monday and raining. Nightingale was reported just before I arrived yesterday at Brookhouse entrance but it eluded me. This am after a late night vigil watching Augusta Golf visited in the very welcome rain, singing Blackcap and Chiffchaff welcomed me to the area but after a few minutes I heard a nightingale the other side of the car park. Stood under a tree for a bit of respite from the rain and suddenly the first nightingale of 2012 was in full song just above my head but out of view. Listened for 10 minutes and retreated home full of the joys of spring.
