Why does it always rain on me!

Sunny, showers, 20º, breezy SSW.

Changeable weather again on the hill and trying to dodge all the rain showers or nearly all!

Up to 6 Spotted Flycatcher present, 2 Wheatear, 1 Redstart, 2 Common Whitethroat, 1 Willow Warbler, 1 Blackcap, 5 Chiffchaff, 1 Yellow Wagtail and 17 Swallow flew over moving south.

A Tit flock on the north side of the hill comprised at least 21 Long-tailed Tit, 12 Blue Tit, 3 Chiffchaff, a Willow Warbler and a couple of Great Tit and a few others that escaped my attention.

Also 6 Yellowhammer noted and the Linnet flock still present.

Dragonflies; 2 Southern Hawker, 1 Brown Hawker and several Common Darter.

Butterflies; several Small White, Small Tortoiseshell and Speckled Wood, 1 Red Admiral.
