Danson Bird Reports July 2015

John Turner’s records from Danson Park for July 2015.

John comments

“Both the little grebe nest (disappeared)  and great crested grebe nest (abandoned) have failed it seems. The garden warbler was a quick glimpse of a brown warbler! Thus the ? The ringlet, the ruddy darter and the banded demoiselle are our first records for Danson Park.”
