|One of several Chiffchaffs today|
|Young Spot. Fly.|
A few more HERRING GULLS were seen today, 22 birds headed west, mainly staying fairly low. SWALLOWS were thin the ground with a couple of flocks in single figures being noted, I did hear HOUSE MARTIN in one of these as well. Another small flock of birds was near the offices and contained more Chiffchaffs and several BLACKCAPS as well as half a dozen YELLOWHAMMER.

A new bird for the month was COLLARED DOVE and a couple of birds I missed on Saturday were seen, GREY HERON and MOORHEN, the Grey Heron being mobbed as it descended down to the lake.

Two GREY WAGTAILS called as they flew high over the lake heading west and were also new for the month taking the total to 60. The last bit of action was a SPARROWHAWK that flew out of a nearby Oak, I rarely manage to spot them before I spook them, more field craft required I think!!?
