The search for a Garden Warbler or Turtle Dove in the Scrubby Woods goes on, unsuccessfully, the only summer birds heard there were the the CHIFFCHAFFS and BLACKCAPS.

The caravans and tents are still over on the sheep pasture at Migrant Alley, so no circuit of the fields was had, hopefully they will all have moved off by tomorrow. Whilst at the Greenhouse Grounds listening to the COMMON WHITETHROATS, a GREY HERON (58) flew over, keeping the May list just about creeping along, another YELLOW WAGTAIL also flew over, cheering me up a bit :-) The only other summer birds seen though were the SWALLOWS. The male KESTREL was back hunting around the Greenhouses, after not being seen yesterday.

I didn't find a single Damselfly at all, but had better luck with the Garden warblers, although my only photo effort was against the light and had sticks in the way - as is usually the case :-)
|Oh yea, that's what Garden warblers look like!|
|They didn't stay still for long!|
|This one was inspecting the Daisies|
|Whist its siblings dozed off|
|The young MOORHENS dont quite have the cuteness of the Goslings :-)|
