Sunday 19th June 2016


Whitethroats with their young out & about.

A Coal Tit will be a dispersing juvenile whereas a couple of new female Blackcaps will be failed breeders going walkabout in search of pastures new. Offshore 3 Great-crested Grebe & a Curlew went south. A Nightingale on the Icky ridge may well be one summering here that we just don't see or hear very often.

Michaelmas Daisy at the northern end of the site is quite possibly an addition to the site list but as it's a garden escape originally from North America we aren't going to get to excited.

11 birds ringed: 3 Dunnock, 2 Blackcap, 1 Magpie, 1 Song Thrush, 1 Chaffinch, 1 Goldfinch, 1 House Sparrow, 1 Linnet.
