Trip down to Cromwell to have a nosey but it was
very quiet, Heron, Cormorant and the regular birds,
place is very overgrown and the lagoon is non-existent
which is a shame, its a pity the council don't clear it of
the reeds because it could be a fantastic lake for wildlife.
Squirrels were decimating the feeders and the bugs were
biting lumps out of me, ended up with swollen hand and arm.

Ringby Lane yesterday was very quiet and very hot,
Meadow Pipit, Skylark, Flocks of Goldfinch & Linnets, at
the bottom of the lane were 8 House Sparrows and was surprised
to see a Squirrel on the lane. Oh and a Dunnock. JJL was as also up
there having a look around.

At last I managed to get a half decent shot of a Wheatear near 'The Withens this afternoon.
Also nearby a Whinchat, more Wheatears, 2 Skylarks, 3 Stonechats and a big surprise with a fly- through cream crown Marsh Harrier found low down then it went higher and higher and I lost it in the haze.

The other interesting migrant I have had recently on Beacon Hill was a Lesser Whitethroat on 20 August. I had good views of it perched on a Hawthorn bush and in flight, but did not manage a photo.
