No sign of the Dartford Warbler today. A great pity in view of the much improved conditions....lightwise. I also  missed a Short Eared Owl according to visiting birder Tim who was up and about before me this morning.
Wall to wall sunshine all day but a visit to the North Wall was not very productive. Highlight perhaps, was a Clouded Yellow butterfly...
The usual selection of birds were present but somehow photographs were few and far between and
my hopes of a really good photography day did not come up to scratch. However here are a few...
Goldfinch....taken in trhe garden before I set out!

Reed Bunting along the North wall

Stonechat...there were a total of six Stonechats between the Little Lagoon and Church Farm.

Wrens are always good to see!

Redshanks are always on the look out

...and are the first wader to take flight when disturbed! there we have it...a pleasant day but nothing to get the adrenalin rushing!
