Hunter Hill

A nice surprise was a pair of Redstarts this afternoon with at least one juvenile.
Poor photo's I know - record shots only as they were very flighty and kept hiding away for long periods.
 
Juvenile
 

Adults
 
Also nearby was a juvenile Green Woodpecker, a couple of Meadow Pipits and 2 Willow Warblers
The big hedge at Mixenden Res'r is often good at this time of year for migrant warblers but I could only find 3 Willow Warblers in there.
4 Kestrels nearby
30+ Swallows and 20+ House Martins over Stodfold (+35 Canadas)! but not a sign of any Swifts today.
