Another hot day made it feel that summer had now arrived, with not a cloud in the sky and hardly even a breeze. A Reed Warbler, the first one this year, was chattering away in Cristin Withy, while a thin scattering of other warblers actively feeding and singing in the warmth included nine Sedge Warblers, two Whitethroats, a Blackcap, six Chiffchaffs and a Willow Warbler. Seven Spotted Flycatchers were counted, a Hooded Crow flew over and four Collared Doves were in the gardens. Three White Wagtails were still present on the Narrows, five Redpolls and a Goldfinch were seen, and a Buzzard and a Kestrel appeared in the morning. Five Swifts, 14 Sand Martins, 80 Swallows and 37 House Martins passed through.
