My Cockerel had woke me early at 5:30 so I took a early morning drive over the hill to Lickeen Lake to see if any Grassshopper warblers had arrived.
A dark damp morning I headed into the fields of tussock grass that i visit every year alongside the Ballymacken river and 4 birds were calling.
I believe the birds had arrived here over night with the partial eclipse of the moon as I heard none yesterday on a short visit ,They start a singing display as soon as they arrive,claiming there territory .

During the winter months the Golden Plovers seem colourless dull and drab, but as they moult and change into the summer plumage a striking looking bird develops,full of colours and tones....I still really enjoy their contact calls and whistles as you approach them on the reef
