12th June

The wide variety of weather we experienced through the day (heavy rain merging into thick fog, followed by rain and thick fog together before a bright, pleasant late afternoon gave us hope until thick fog rolled in again!) produced a nice variety of birds with the Golden Oriole of two days ago reappearing in a mist net at Holland House, a female Red-backed Shrike also at Holland and a smart male Black Redstart at Bewan the highlights.   Other birds of note included 45 Knot, a Whimbrel, 23 Bar-tailed Godwits and the Wood Sandpiper again.

As well as migrants, the local Wrens are just starting to fledge
