14th May

A very blustery day with frequent, nasty showers whipping through saw the first Cuckoo of the year seen around Holland House in the evening but unfortunately it bounced out of the mist nets a couple of times without getting caught; unlike the Turtle Dove which did manage to get caught - an unusual and not annual capture!   Migrant totals included a Heron, single Wood and Common Sandpipers, three Collared Doves, a Tree Pipit, a Sedge Warbler, 4 Lesser Whitethroats, three Blackcaps, 4 Chiffchaffs, 4 Willow Warblers and a Pied Flycatcher.   The 1st summer Little Gull and the flock of Tree Sparrows remained.
