21st June

Another warm day, with a decent selection of birds still around. Most of the birds were again at Holland House where the highlights were a Golden Oriole again and 2 Rosefinches-both trapped and ringed in the evening. A Song Thrush, Pied Flycatcher and Common Redpoll were new arrivals there while the Turtle Dove, Reed Warbler and Lesser Whitethroat were still present. A Spotted Flycatcher was near Gravity and 4 Swifts were over the Observatory late in the day. 3 Pintails on Hooking Loch were the best of the rest and there are now 20 fledged Black-headed Gull chicks in that area.
