Spot Flys +

Cool and breezy with frequent rain, 15°, mod NNW.

The south face of the hill fairly quiet today with c80 Swallow and a handful of House Martin over and a single Yellow Wagtail south.

The north side had a little more closer encounters with 2 Spotted Flycatcher, a Blackcap, 2 Common Whitethroat and 4 Chiffchaff.

The Common Redstart still present in the hedgerow further north of the hill.

Mammals: Stoat.

Very few insects around given the weather.

Dragonflies: Southern Hawker.

Butterflies: 2 Small White and a Speckled Wood.

Weekend News: A Common Redstart and a Common Whitethroat on the hill on Saturday, also a few Mistle Thrush still evident (per Tony Williams).
