I met Stephen and he hadn't seen a lot but had caught up with the Silver Washed Fritillary the other day, I tried the hedgerows, there were more young CHIFFCHAFFS today and a Gatekeeper posed briefly. I thought I heard a Yellow Wagtail and did see what could have been it ,drop quickly into the wheat behind a hedge but when I got there, it had moved on, possibly due to the SPARROWHAWK that whizzed over the same hedge! SKYLARKS, YELLOWHAMMER and REED BUNTING all took their respective places on todays role call (I have just had a blank, did I use the right role/roll!). After Mondays double, nothing new today but hopefully Sand Martin or Grasshopper Warbler are not far away! The Flycatchers below were seen at work.
