Warblers & Flycatchers

Mainly sunny, 20°, light to breezy N.

A single Whinchat on the hill today along with a Common Whitethroat, Garden Warbler and a Reed Bunting.

The area around the 2 Oak trees and the central hedge in the cow field was rather lively, with up to 5 Spotted Flycatcher, a Lesser Whitethroat, 5 Common Whitethroat, 3 Blackcap, 2 Willow Warbler 10+ Chiffchaff and a Treecreeper.

Mammals: Brown Hare.
