Whitethroat Day!

Description of sighting

a very hot and initially misty day.While I did hear but not see,singing Chiffchaff and Geenfinch,the overarching song was from Common Whitethroat which were very obligingly perching in good view as I walked out along the road.Male Chaffinch and male linnet were a picture in the bright sunshine.dissapointingly there were no sign of Raven or any Raptor species.There was an additional bonus of many different butterfly species in the sunshine.
