Today' migrants are Great-spotted Woodpecker and Reed Warbler plus a Curlew heading south. Good selection of insects on site including Brown Hawker dragonfly which we only noted for the first time ever a couple of years back.

Bordered Beauty has only been noted here on a couple of previous occasions despite it, apparently, being listed as common inland. It is noteworthy that several of the commoner species from inland are often a bit worn & tatty by the time they reach us.

Ringing: 4 Linnet, 1 Blue Tit, 1 Goldfinch, 1 Great Tit, 1 House Sparrow, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 1 Robin, 1 Wren.
