It was mostly as you were on my patch, the daylist reached 48, one more than yesterday, but a few different species were found, two LESSER BLACK BACKED GULLS were one of those species, seen going over heading SW, along with a HERRING GULL. Another species not seen yesterday, or in fact at all yet this month was a CORMORANT (63), it flew rapidly NE, and makes the May species list a little more creditable, the total of 63 being the 8th best May from eleven, the LITTLE OWL showed up on the guttering of one of the Greenhouses again, last seen there on the 7th.

Yellowhammer and Nuthatch still elude the May list altogether, while Coal Tit and Bullfinch haven't been seen all weekend. The SPOTTED FLYCATCHER that arrived yesterday at the College Grounds was found again, and all but one of the other resident breeding summer migrants put in a appearance, LESSER WHITETHROAT, COMMON WHITETHROAT, SWIFT, SWALLOW, CHIFFCHAFF, and BLACKCAP, the Garden Warbler was the only no show.
Other notables seen today were a BUZZARD over Migrant Alley, also one of the KESTRELS was up hunting, and a single SKYLARK sang over the Greenhouse Complex. The COOTS are making a good job of bringing up their two remaining offspring, and both the JAY nests were occupied :-)
Didn't get that many photo's today, as the fog ruined the best of the light, and by the time it cleared the light was too fierce ......................no pleasing me is there! :-)
