After work I passed through Migrant Alley again, but nothing there migrant wise was noted, so after lunch I visited the lakes and Scrubby Woods. At last it had livened up a bit here, with a mixed feeding flock found, comprising of BLUE TITS, GREAT TITS, NUTHATCH, TREECREEPER, GOLDCREST, BULFINCH, CHAFFINCH, GOLDFINCH, BLACKCAP, CHIFFCHAFF anf GARDEN WARBLER, strangely though, no Long Tailed Tits.
A visit to the Tree Nursery didn't amount to much, until two HOBBIES came circling overhead, so another walk round Migrant Alley was had, here it had picked up a bit, with 45 LINNETS, 35 STARLINGS and best of all my 3rd WHINCHAT of the month, alas, it didn't allow any sort of approach for a photo :-( A short sky watch produced two very distant and off patch Buzzards, but the KESTREL seen hunting was very much on patch.
Certainly a much better day than yesterday!
I didn't get any bird photo's today, but I caught this Brown Hawker hiding in the brambles
I also found a few butterflies in the Scrubby woods, this Small Copper was in the best condition, it was with a more tatty Brown Argus and a Common Blue
