This morning, I decided to once again explore the hedge west of the car park along the ‘counter drain’ at Eldernell, Cambs (part of the Nene Washes complex). I encountered 50 species, including 1 Spotted Flycatcher, 4 Cetti’s Warblers, 13 Chiffchaffs, 5 Blackcaps, 6 Whitethroats, 2 Whitethroats, 2 Willow Warblers, fly-over Siskin and Marsh Harrier. There was a steady stream of migrating Meadow Pipits, heading south and Brown Argus and Small Heath butterflies were on the Rabbit-grazed areas.
