Some fill in's

A single Common Tern was showing, and that was the only real bird of note.

The patch was slightly more interesting, with a singing male Garden Warbler around one of the usual territories at the north end of the patch and also 2 drake Mandarin on the river.

Unseen by me, it seems like both Mandarin and Goosander have bred on, or very near patch this year, with both having been seen with very young chicks, however still to this day i have not had a sniff of any of them!

Very glad to finally year tick Little owl at a local site, and we had decent views of one of the birds sitting out on the tree. A Red-legged Partridge was also seen in the nearby fields.
