This faded Wheatear with a dicky wing is the first of it's kind noted here since 21st May. Is it a late spring migrant or a failed breeder ? Either way it's wing issues didn't stop it getting here ! Heading south 15 Curlew, 13 Swift, 2 Swallow, Redshank, Oyk & Siskin.

The first Bordered Straw of the year in the moth trap is worth a mention.

5 birds ringed: 2 Goldfinch, 1 Song Thrush, 1 Whitethroat, 1 Greenfinch.
