Various sites

Mixenden/Ogden this morning was hard work in the drizzle but a male Stonechat with 3 fledged juvs still in attendance but still no sign of the female. Also in the same area 2 Whitethroats and a male Reed Bunting still singing. Not a lot else other than a few Swifts SW, 2 House Martins and lots of Swallows. Several Pied Wagtails, 1 Meadow Pipit and 30 B H Gulls and 1 L B B G in the fields at Stodfold.

Earlier this morning 30+ Swifts around for over an hour over Lee Mount/Shroggs Park chasing round and screaming.

Swales Moor this afternoon - nothing about other than 35 Swallows, 1 House Martin and 3 Swifts all heading  west. 1 Common Gull and 6 L B BGulls loitering and a single Meadow Pipit. Usual corvids and c 4 Kestrels about.
