Monday 5th June 2017

It's one of those blogs when no migrants on site to mention apart from those that are here for the season. 5 House Martin & a couple of Swifts did fly through presumably moving ahead of the increasing gale. Male Greenfinch feeding on site in recent days, although it is sad to have to mention this species as it used to be one of the commonest of Landguard birds that has recently fallen on hard times. Mr & Mrs Peregrine were having a wizz round this morning. Their breeding attempt failed at the end of April after which they became elusive as they tend to do.

Dark Spectacle is regular here although the wind was blowing it's tufts around during the photographic attempts.
