Not too far away -in overgrown cutting, chiffchaff and willow warbler singing regularly.
Noted before but still pleasing -many more greenfinches in evidence than in recent years-at least two singing males on the estate.
Another with many more sightings this year is starling -up to 15 adults in garden feeding on fat-balls.
