Firstly I had two pairs of Gadwall and Captain Daylate’s Goldeneye was still present. The eastern woods held two Chiffchaff but no Lesser Spotted Woodpecker as last weekend. There was also a singing male Reed Bunting present at Warbler Corner in the patch of reeds that surround a hidden pond. Apart from that it was generally quite. Hopefully with a front moving through there might be a few hirundines around tomorrow.
For those interested my day in Wales produced Glaucous Gull, Chough, Black Grouse and a stunning Dartford Warbler (see below). Not surprisingly (as the good Captainn was with me) we dipped on Bonies and Iceland Gull. But the Dartford Warbler gave stunning views.
