Sunny and warm am but it clouded over pm and with a NE wind picking up, it created chilly conditions. Best bird of the day was a late Redwing at the RAF base. Also seen: 10 Whimbrel, Greenshank, 2 Cuckoo, 1+ Turtle Dove, 5 Wheatear, 5 Lesser Whitethroat, plenty of Whitethroats now in, 2 Blackcap, 3 Sedge Warbler & Reed Warbler (the last two being patch year ticks). Steady passage through of Swallows with a few Swifts and a Sand Martin.
Best butterflies were Wall Brown (year tick), Orange Tip, 2 Small Copper (year tick) & 2 Green Hairstreak.
