Little was again present today, although the weather was more pleasant than yesterday. A Skylark, three House Martins, 25 Swallows, 12 Wheatears, seven Sedge Warblers, six Whitethroats, four Willow Warblers, five Blue Tits, a Goldfinch and 25 Linnets represented the usual passerines seen inland and around the coast. The Grey Heron was again around the narrows, and waders seen included: a Redshank, five Ring Plovers, two Common Sandpipers and 26 Curlews. Two Black-headed Gulls were also seen.

 Sedge Warbler
Adult Swallows have been very busy recently, flying back and forth to feed their young throughout the day, producing a never ending supply of insects of many different varieties. The fledglings seem to prefer lining up on barbed wire fences, awaiting their food eagerly.
