A cloudless morning meant that despite the promising wind conditions, we had a similar day to yesterday in terms of migration. Highlights were another pied flycatcher in the compound, the first green woodpecker we've had in several days and 2 first year whitethroats. 

Dragonflies were very noticeable today, with almost double figures of migrant hawker, a southern hawker and an emperor working the net lanes.

Despite being common elsewhere, the Blood-Vein moth is scarce here. 

Ringed Birds: House Sparrow 2, Whitethroat 2.
