No Red-rump

Another trip to Ferry Meadows. Not a lot about, though I heard (and saw) my first Garden Warblers of the year, which is always nice. For me, their song compares favourably with Nightingale, and they're not featureless and boring...

I was really hoping for a Red-rumped Swallow (they seem to be everywhere else, so why not Peterborough?), but drew a blank, though there were loads of House Martins zipping about. Don Gardener and Matt Webb saw six Arctic Terns but I didn't.

What's in my CD player: Feast Of Wire - Calexico
