...and again!

 Another early morning session along the Great Ouse at Kempston with the Otter. Caught up with it at the south east corner of Box End Park and followed it upstream into Biddenham Loop CP. Finally left it munching on something unseen in a reed bed towards the north end of Box End Park.

On the way back home came across this Blackcap singing in the wooded section of the riverside trail between Biddenham Loop and the Back Channel.

There were also a couple of Sedge Warblers singing along the Box End Park side of the river this morning following on from the one I had yesterday in the mill pool at Kempston Mill, and the one I had on Thursday at the mouth of the Back Channel.

Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs quite numerous with small numbers of Willow Warblers also around this morning.
