Saturday 18th June

Had a walk around this morning and as expected it was rather quiet. There was an adult Grey Wagtail and a juvenile near the carpark, and I assume that they have bred nearby. There were around ten Common Tern and Lapwing are starting to reappear although at the moment they are still in single figures.

There were the usual warblers singing around the site although Willow Warbler appear to be thin on the ground this year. As I tend to stay in the immediate area I don’t know if that is a general trend or just locally. I had another Reed Bunting at a different site today. I also observed family parties of Great Tit, Blue Tit, Bullfinch and Great Spotted Woodpecker.
