Today was quiet compared with the unseasonal excitement of the previous day, but it was still good by July’s usual standards. The sighting of the day was a male Crossbill seen drinking from a puddle near the limekiln, while other highlights were mainly residue from yesterday’s arrival: 27 Willow Warblers and a couple of Grasshopper Warblers remained, along with a single Snipe. A flock of seven Common Sandpipers continued a good period of passage for this species, a couple of Swifts and Starlings were seen and six Common Scoters passed at sea.
