Cloudy at first then brighter, 15°, breezy SW.

Very little change along the Bunk line today. Plenty of Swift around and a good number of Swallow but no House Martin noted.

A couple of Black-headed Gull and the usual Warblers and Buntings in song. A flock of c40 Linnet and Goldfinch feeding on Dandelion seed heads.

The River/Marsh has settled down birdwise and has become somewhat static as it usually does at this time of year. A Lesser Whitethroat still in song.

Insectwise the area is waking up:

Dragonflies: Beautiful Demoiselle & Club-tailed Dragonfly.

Butterflies: Brimstone, Orange Tip, Small White, Green-veined White, Common Blue, Holly Blue, Red Admiral, Small Tortoiseshell, Peacock & Speckled Wood.
