Today's migrants on another hot day included single Garden Warbler, Pied Flycatcher, Redstart, Swallow & Willow Warbler plus a visiting Great Spotted Woodpecker. 22 Cormorant came south then in as groups are now arriving for the winter.

The first site record of Duponcuella fovealis has probably escaped from a pot plant via a Garden Centre so we ain't going to get to excited about it. The larvae can be a serious pest to horticulturalists but they will keep bringing these adventive species into the country and with the climate changing it may colonise the great outdoors.

Ringing: 1 Blue Tit, 1 Garden Warbler, 1 Willow Warbler, 1 Wood Pigeon.
