Double Whammy

Having got out a bit late this morning I rushed down the lakes, keen to get down to the bottom end only to get a text from Nick informing me I had walked past a reeling Grasshopper Warbler (a Lakes tart's tick for Nick as it happens!), that thankfully was still there when I walked back past a while later. Although regular, Gropper was by no means a certainty, unlike the Cuckoo calling from the neighbouring Barnham Cross Common taking us to 116.


  1. I was thinking of 'Reely good start to the week' as a title... glad you beat me to it (if not the bird itself!) Neil

  2. I was hoping for a Garden Warbler too but that would have meant mention of a treble which is sadly a sore point!
