Water vole sign picked up just about all the way along this stretch of the Don...
Saturday morning was the more productive (before the rain).
Singing males- 9 Chiffchaff, 9 Blackcaps, 1 Willow warbler, 5 Bullfinch (calling), 1 Reed bunting, numerous Wrens,Robins,Gold and Chaffinchs. Three Song thrush males along the stretch of waterway were slightly outdone by 3 Mistle thrush territories pretty close together just off the Don's path. And my first ducklings of the year 13/14 of them in the Calf close section of the Don.

Checked on another couple of sites along the Don yesterday which seldom get reported upon. Fresh Vole sign in places but no way near the amount that the burn has.
No fresh Otter sign over the last week.
Yesterday a pair of Willow tits were seen along one section of the Don, first I've seen around these parts for a couple of years.
