The rain persisted again today, still 5 new birds were ringed in brief clear spells, including a new female Blackcap and some local fledged Linnet, Robin and Dunnock juveniles. 4 Reed Warblers were around the reserve as well as a male Wheatear and a dozen or so Terns, both Common and Little. The Red-backed Shrike was not seen but could well still be loitering around Adastral Close. Having circulated images of the plover from yesterday the general consensus seem to suggest it was indeed an American Golden Plover.
