The birding was a bit more predictable, it was pleasing to hear TURTLE DOVE by the moat. The odd SWIFT was drifting around over the woods and the CHAFFINCH flock was again touching maybe 30 birds. It was surprising not hear or see any Goldfinches, the first time for several months they haven't appeared on the morning list. Two of the SPOTTED FLYCATCHERS were seen this morning and the first young BULLFINCH of the year was seen, I was beginning to think they may not appear!
I couldn't find any early wandering warblers in the hedges only a couple of LESSER WHITETHROATS and COMMON WHITETHROATS, the young REED BUNTINGS were also still around. My gull species this morning was 1 LESSER BLACK BACKED!
