A pair of TREECREEPERS were collecting food for youngsters in the College Grounds, but I don't know where their nest is, one SPOTTED FLYCATCHER was also seen, hopefully the female will be on a nest somewhere. Two pairs of SONGTHRUSH were on the lawns, taking food to already fledged young, while the MOORHENS on the ponds are already starting brood number two.
Not much was in the sky this morning, a SPARROWHAWK was about as exciting as it got during my hour on my sky watching seat, I was hoping for a Hobby or Grey Heron for the months list.
The afternoon was spent looking for Butterflies, Dragonflies and Damsels, where a bit later on I was joined by Marc Heath, of http://marcheath.blogspot.co.uk/ fame, we spent an enjoyable couple of hours finding the target species of Beautiful Demoiselle and White-legged damselfly, as well as plenty of Azure Damselfly and Red Legged Damselfly, plus another Hairy Dragonfly (only my second patch record, both this year) also at least two Broad Bodied Chasers were seen.
We got a few photo's between us, here's my efforts :-)
