Singleton Lake Ashford

Just a five minute drive from Shadoxhurst, Singleton lake primarily a fishing lake, is a magnet for summer migrants especially warblers. From the car park path to the emerging reeds on the lakeside, Willow, Sedge and Reed warblers accompanied by Nightingale, Blackcap and Chiffchaff can be heard and seen. Its a great way to catch up with summer birds and introduce any one to birdwatching. Its so easy and fun! With just a little reed coverage around the edge, Reed warblers are quick to spot especially as there isn't to much new reed growth yet. This first bird has a prominent ring on its lake.
