A late Turnstone and a couple of Kestrels were the highlights of a day that was uneventful even by the standards of the previous few days. Two Collared Doves remained with four Chiffchaffs and a couple of Goldfinches, and three each of Swifts and House Martins went by. A clutch of Skylark eggs on the west coast hatched recently and the chicks were ringed this morning.

Perhaps not the cutest of chicks up close...
