Pannel Valley NR

4th August 2006, Friday

After the rain and strong winds of the past few days, a clear night promised a good arrival of migrants and we were not to be disappointed although the variety was limited. Willow Warbler was the most obvious species in the sallows and hedgerows with at least 100 present and Sedge Warbler were particularly numerous in the reedbed. Otherwise a fly over Crossbill was noteworthy, as were 8 Greenshank in flight over the valley.
