A warm start to the day on the 21st meant things looked promising and a Pied Flycatcher trapped early in the day made for a good start. Five House Martins around Holland were joined by 12 or more Swallows. A male Ring Ouzel made an appearance in the Funny Park and our first Black-throated Diver of year, a stunning summer plumaged bird, was sat in the firth. Finally 2 Dunnocks, a Willow Warbler and 2 Blackcaps were trapped through the morning and a male Ruff was seen flying South in the early afternoon.
