Bird wise a bit of a mid-summer doldrums sort of morning with migrants non-existent. The juv Skylark from last week is still with us - hopefully it will hang around to encourage recolonisation of the site as this species has not bred here this century. The local pair of Peregrines are still regularly seen but are very much part of the scenery these days so barely get a mention. Ringlet butterflies are now being noted in the observatory area as well as the top left hand corner of the reserve which is indicative of a slow but gradual colonisation of the site.

5 birds ringed: 2 Linnet, 1 Wren, 1 Whitethroat, 1 Great Tit.
