Summer stability

Cloudy with a few sunny spells, 22°, light SW.

A warm muggy day with very little noted, very little change happening at this point in the summer. Most have settled down still holding territory, raising young and being fairly unobtrusive.

Maybe over the next few weeks young birds will start to wander, failed breeders may start to move back south before the start of the return migration towards the end of July.

5 to 6 Yellowhammer in song around the hill, 3 Corn Bunting, 5 Whitethroat, 3 Blackcap, 1 Lesser Whitethroat and 2 Chiffchaff and apart from a couple of Blackbird no other song noted.

Mammals: 2 Bank Vole scurried past me and a Brown Hare seen distantly.

Dragonflies: Emperor, 4-spot Chaser and a few Azure Damselflies.

Butterflies: Brimstone, Large White, Small White, Speckled Wood, Small Tortoiseshell, Red Admiral and Meadow Brown.

Another Hornet seen.
