At last a morning with no rain but an appointment made for a late start, so it was down to the plots at 10.30. It looked fairly quiet, just the usual stonechats but no whitethroats etc however a flock of c.70 siskins were flying west skimming over the field at a height of about five feet. These were followed by another three flocks of about 30-40 in each, no doubt more before and after I left. A few stock dove singles were also flying west along with small numbers of mipits. A couple of cetti's made their presence known and a solitary rook flew in from the east and all the time a steady number of hirundines were flying through.

Next I took a walk up to the wall on the LNNR finding the usual big flock of linnets and goldfinches and on the way back 2 whinchats on the 'chalet track'. I also came across a lone small heath in the wet grass.
Tonight at 7.00 pm hirundines were still moving through over my house.
