Hot, humid and sunny weather predominated the last couple of days.

After a trip out to Rye Harbour yesterday, today's patch visit was restricted, due to other engagements during the day. I had a quick look around Migrant Alley early on, where a couple of YELLOW WAGTAIL were noted fleeing the paddocks. A WHITETHROAT was seen in the boundary hedge line bordering the Greenhouse Grounds, where at least 45 GOLDFINCHES fed on the surviving thistle heads, the vast majority being immature birds.

KESTREL, BUZZARD, SPARROWHAWK and a SWALLOW chasing HOBBY were all seen, during a brief sky watch.
