A quiet day.

 I had company when visiting the Spit hide this morning!
2 Peregrines were  devouring a Swift yesterday morning on the island but this morning a single juvenile was just loafing/preening.
Greenfinches and Linnets seem to have had a good breeding season this year with plenty of juvs around...and House Sparrows would appear to have had the best season for several years.

Sand Martins were much in evidence this morning with considerable movement East. A few Swifts were going West at some height during the afternoon. We have had a Whitethroat in out beach Buddleia for the past 3 weeks and it was very busy today feeding on insects/grubs.

Apart from these bits and pieces little else.
