Several Pyramidal Orchid are out on the Butts.

Bright n' breezy morning. Heading south 7 Black-headed Gull, 5 Curlew, 3 Swift & Kittiwake. On site an adult Chiffchaff is presumably a failed breeder from elsewhere and one of the recent Nightingales called by the back gate. A Black Redstart is the first seen since the end of May.

With only eleven British records up to the end of 2020 it was good to get the first site record of Sciota rhenella which lives on Poplars on the continent so the trees here should be to its liking.

Ringing: 4 Great Tit, 2 Goldfinch, 1 House Sparrow, 1 Linnet, 1 Whitethroat, 1 Wren.
