11 Common Scoter went south & a dozen Swifts north. Loads of baby birds about including a fresh brood of Lesser 'throats in the Holm Oaks. We can still only see one baby Little Owl out & about but we live in hope there are more hidden away somewhere - unless this one has eaten his siblings whilst growing up. Botanically the place is quite superb at the moment with insects a plenty across the entire site.

24 birds ringed: 5 pied wagtail, 5 greenfinch, 4 linnet, 3 goldfinch, 2 dunnock, 2 house sparrow, 1 whitethroat, 1 great tit, 1 starling.
