Nice morning but.....

Friday and Saturday had been really good around Ricky, with pied fly and gropper in the aquadrome. So, in a fit of madness i got up at 5.30 to get the dawn chorus and try for the gropper at Stockers Lock. Needless to say with years theme of "day after" neither were around, or were got by anyone else that day. I did get the Little Owl by the flooded lake and a really nice Sedge Warbler singing away in a bush (year list 145).
On the upside though it was a gorgeous if chilly morning, the blackcaps et al were singing really well and it felt good to be out, although i was really ready for a coffee by the time i got back!"!
