Saturday / Sunday 12/13.05.12 NHGP

Has summer arrived at last ???
Started at Castle lake area as was checking for nightingales for the survey with no luck.
Arrived at Brooklands to find Terry L , Martin's C & W so tagged along till midday. Highlight of the day was when Martin C called Yellow Wagtail and we all managed to see the bird fly over the sunken marsh. I believe that may be a first for me at NHGP. Over 50 species were picked up before I left including Buzzard/Hobby/Sparrowhawk/Kestrel/Peregrine. At the dyke at Brookhouse entrance a 3 foot plus Grass snake was seen in the dyke. along with Water Voles.
Sunday again started at Castle Lake again no Nightingales. On to Brookhouse hoping to get decent photos of Water Vole but though they were seen  posing for the camera is not one of their strong points. Afternoon stroll round Holborough but nothing new to the list.
