The female Serin made an appearance again today, presumably the same long staying bird. How it manages to disappear for such long periods remains a mystery. Two Peregrines graced the docks cranes once more and both Hobby and Kestrel were seen on the reserve. More baby birds on the ringing front, including Starling, Greenfinch and Chaffinch, an Adult female Blackcap is likely to be a wandering failed breeder. The Stinking Goosefoot is starting to sprout up near the butts and a Meadow Brown was the first of this species for the year. A new specie for the site came in the form of a Silverfish in the Mothtraps.
