A different kind of day today, warm, sunny, humid, lovely. Birding however was just a little mundane. A single Kingfisher, half a dozen juvenile Black Headed Gull over, a Kestrel, and Peregrine were about as much as I could find. A pair of Mute Swan with a single cygnet was new. Family groups of Blackcap and Common Whitethroat were feeding busily along Coppermill stream.
Outside bets for a Wood Sandpiper, a Spotshank maybe, but this is patch birding, and stuff like that never happens.
