The day started with a smart male Northern Wheatear on the paddocks that remained for a while before being relocated later on at the cow field. There was a decent mix of Warblers down Track 13 with a Garden Warbler being my first record on the patch. A total of five Lesser Whitethroat, six Willow Warbler (including two singers) with several Blackcap, Chiffchaff, and Common Whitethroat. Overhead, the large numbers of Common Swift were still present with 150+ and 100+ House Martin.
A real surprise was a Firecrest that called a couple of times within scrub as viewed from the bench mound. Attempts to catch a glimpse of the bird were in vain.
Other birds seen were two Kestrel, a Sparrowhawk, and two young Green Woodpecker.
