28th April 2009

An afternoon visit produced 8 Common Terns, 30+ Swallows and 6 Mallard broods at the lakes. Saw a Kestrel hovering over fields southeast of Terry's Pool. At the scrubland south of Windmill Pool, I saw a Common Whitethroat and a possible Garden Warbler, as well as a Swift over Earlswood Common gardens heading towards the lakes.
Rain, hail, thunder and lightning forced me to leave, and I got soaked to the skin cycling home.
