A quieter couple of days for me here but the addition of Willow Warblers (5) and Sand martin on the 15th was later than expected but still nice. common Whitethroats seemed in to have arrived in numbers throughout the patch now and the local Swallows appear to be back in business.

Single Yellow wagtails are being seen flying in off the sea as too are the occasional White Wagtail, however a flock of 4 of the latter kindly alighted on the recently ploughed field just east of Langdon hole for me on the 15th.

Phil S kindly let me know the whereabouts of 2 flowering Early Spider Orchids which I went to have a look for and eventually came across 3 of them. fantastic things.

I spent much of today working out in the garden and the gulls kindly let me know when any Buzzards passed too low for their liking including this pale bird that I’ve not seen locally before. The Peregrines went absolutely ballistic and almost killed it before it moved on.
