A really good morning at Broom in warm and humid conditions. Thankfully the rain stayed away.
There was once again plenty of waders to go through with a new summer plumage Black-tailed Godwit on the scrapes with the two Ruff, five Common Sandpiper (two on GLW), two Green Sandpiper, four Little Ringed Plover and six Snipe.
Heading to Peacocks which was generally quiet, the adjacent scrub and hedgerow held at least four first year Willow Warbler with one in brief song, a Lesser Whitethroat, a Common Whitethroat, and three Blackcap.
Four Swift flew over, and there were good numbers of House Martin with at least 60 over the lake. A Common Tern flew over as did small groups of Lapwing totalling around 80.
A high flying Hobby headed north and a vocal family group of Sparrowhawk were located to the woodland behind GLW with both Kestrel and Buzzard seen on the walk round.
There were also good numbers of Yellow Wagtail with at least 20 seen flying over.
