Paxton Pits

(Lesser Whitethroat)

After a week of mega early starts at Broom, Dan and I decided to get up slightly later on Saturday and visit Paxton Pits in Cambs. Paxton is an amazing site for Nightingales and Dan had never seen one! We'd dipped on them last year after I'd guaranteed him there were loads about so the pressure was on. I needn't have worried though as almost as soon as we got there we heard one singing and shortly after we got some good views. As we walked around we must have seen/heard 10+ individuals. We both managed nothing more than a few record shots however; they just dont seem to want to cooperate with photograhpers! We also saw a Lesser Whitethroat, a new bird for the year making my year list 163.
