After yesterday's success with Nightingale (see post for 23 April), the last thing I expected on the walk from home on Poole Quay to Upton Country Park today was a singing Nightingale. But as I approached the viewing screen on the west side of Holes Bay, a short blast of unmistakable song gave its presence away. I wasn't able to get a look at it, but put the news out and others did manage to see and hear it later. A pair of Wheatear, Raven (pictured) and Stock Dove added further interest, and in a return visit in the evening a drake Garganey (bottom picture) was also present.
