No nightingales in Takeley
This picture was not taken in Takeley. It’s an Essex Man sail barge taken from Robie’s Hide at Fingringhoe Wick on the Colne estuary near Colchester looking across to Brightlingsea.
But within the lifetime of TAllen there have been Nightingales in Takeley. It was wonderful to hear them singing and my claim is I saw two! Trevor thinks not.
We reflected on why there were no longer Nightingales; insect eating birds seem to have really suffered.
Anyway it’s well worth a visit this time of the year and Nightingales are guaranteed.
