The rarity double-act of the previous day appeared to have departed overnight, leaving very little in the way of noteworthy birds behind them. A Cuckoo was the best sighting of the day, with other migrants including a Starling, a Spotted Flycatcher, a Swift and a House Martin. A couple of Siskins, two Goldfinches and four Lesser Redpolls were present around the plantation.

A very regular sight at the moment is of Meadow Pipits provisioning young. Here good numbers of hoverflies were being taken (c) Richard Brown
