Today we had our annual Bird group bird race day and notched up a modest 68 species. Bird of the day was Whimbrel with Lesser pecker and Hobby (first for the year) as other highlights. There was a Greenshank and Common Sand around, a couple of Buzzard over, about 40+ Swallow, 5 Swift and a Garden Warbler too. Noteable ommissions were Chaffinch, Yellow Wagtail, Mistle Thrush, LRP and Peregrine .
Hot Dogs came in during the early afternoon.
