Lade - 0600hrs - warm, dry and sunny - Checked out the breeding birds over the pits this morning; Whitethroat, Reed and Sedge Warblers, Linnets, Skylarks, Great Crested and Little Grebes, Gadwalls, all with fledged young. From the aerial mound 5 Marsh Harriers and singles of Buzzard and Sparrowhawk thermalling above the airport.
