House Sparrows

 A lovely day, very calm throughout with varying bits of cloud floating in and out; quiet on the bird front though as dribs and drabs of note comprised a Blackcap, a Willow Warbler, 12 Common Terns, 3 Curlews and a Whimbrel south and a little influx of new, completely moulted first-winter Robins, probably from not that far away.

Ringing: Robin 3, Wren 1, Willow Warbler 1, Linnet 1

Another nationally scarce species here is Chionodes distinctella living on Bird's-foot Trefoil and Common Sorrel
