Another mild day saw quite a fall of phylloscopus warblers. At least 25 willow warblers were around the site, with several singing intermittently. Amongst these were at least 10 chiffchaffs, 15 blackcap and a firecrest with 3 lesser whitethroat and the regular 4 Cetti's warblers. A nightingale was singing on the reserve and at least 11 wheatears had dropped in overnight. 

Only the third site record of Frosted Green. 

Birds Ringed: Blackbird 1, Blackcap 9, Chiffchaff 6, Goldfinch 3, Great Tit 1, Wheatear 2, Willow Warbler 16.
