First a Yellow Wagtail flew west with another two flying north. A dozen Swallow soon followed also flying north bamboozled by the low cloud. It was all pretty quiet after that apart from around five Willow Warbler around the reserve. A juvenile Common Tern flew lethargically over.
It got a little warmer, and heading down to the cow field, I discovered a couple of Whinchat that were new in. Having been satisfied with this, I returned once again to the paddocks where two Northern Wheatear had arrived, male and female, and three Yellow Wagtail including one rather smart adult bird.
A Hobby then flew in and sat atop the electricity pylon at the far end of the paddocks with another seen circling in close proximity preying on insects.
A slumberous walk took me over to the Waterworks where three Common Buzzard drifted then thermalled before heading away, but no repeat performances on yesterday.
Other noteworthy observations were a singing Common Whitethroat, and the two resident Kestrel.
It was also a pleasure meeting Adam Winstanley today who jammed onto the Common Redstart this morning.
Below is a video of today's highlights.
