The car park was still quiet, NUTHATCH being of note and 2 SPOTTED FLYCATCHERS putting in an appearance. I was drawn again to the corner of the veg garden where I could see a lot of activity again. There are now a few piglets running around in a little pen in this corner, which could be the attraction. There were at least 5 SPOTTED FLYCATCHERS, 2 adult and 3 young, 3 WILLOW WARBLERS, a TREECREEPER, several CHIFFCHAFFS, CHAFFINCHES and BLUE and GREAT TITS. At the corner of the moat 1 GARDEN WARBLER explored a young oak and 10 HERRING GULLS flew north. The hedges were quieter but still held half a dozen REED BUNTINGS and several YELLOWHAMMERS. Stephen had the WHEATEAR again in the same field as yesterday and as I left a BUZZARD flew west. I'm a bit behind still on photos so here are a few that I managed to upload yesterday.
