Clennon Valley

Yellow-browed Warbler Clennon Valley around very top 'spring pool' (W end of three larger ponds) with a few Goldcrests. Probably present since Monday when I was sure I heard one calling several times but didn't see it. This is a fairly vocal bird I heard it from half way across the playing fields today. There were no chiffchaffs present around the ponds!

Also 3 Water Rail 3 Gadwall and a  returning moulting male Pintail.
