Messingham

Strong easterlies with heavy showers today.
Thought I'd have a break from the coast today so headed inland to Messingham. A Wood Warbler was a surprise find, it sang 4-5 times and I had brief views of it in the tree canopy before it disappeared in the blustery conditions. 4 Black Terns went through (an influx of these stunning terns occured in the UK today during strong easterlies). 2+ Common Tern, Green Woodpecker, Cuckoo & Garden Warbler also present. Messingham is of course a dragon/damselfly mecca but today was far from ideal conditions. Not surprisingly I failed to locate any Hairy Dragons but a few damselflies were found sheltering in foliage.
