It was a fairly quiet and settled week. The 2 Common Terns have been around most of the week and there was a late Common Gull on the 10th. There has been a Common Sandpiper and a male Little Ringed Plover around most days. I expect the plover is actually one of a nesting pair somewhere nearby.
Lots of Swifts in now and most days all three hirundines are around. A few more Yellow Wagtails have been through and there are more warblers, with 6 Reed Warblers across the whole patch on Saturday morning which is a really good number for here. The Mute Swans have hatched 3 cygnets. There was a Otter along the river on the Friday morning.
