Male Garganey 
Male Lapwing 
Hoverfly sp?

I possibly had one get away from me this morning- thought I clearly heard the simple song of a Common Rosefinch twice but failed to see it. The male Garganey that Johnny found yesterday is still around and also there are 6 Ringed Plover and 4 Little Ringed Plover on the lakes. Frankie had a Wheatear and also there were about 10 Swallows so migrants are still moving in.
A few more young birds are about too- Pied Wagtails today and plenty of young Tree Sparrows. At least three pairs of Gadwall still and 2 pairs of Shelduck .
Quiet in the moth trap- the evenings have got cool now and not a lot flying.
