Put plenty of effort in today covering Stonebridge to Pyes, Sea View & Rimac to Churchill Lane but with not much reward. 107 Pinkfeet south, 2 Greenshank, Common Buzzard, Merlin, 2 Yellow Wagtail, 2 Stonechat, 3 Whinchat, 5 Redstart, 3 Chiffchaff & a Lesser Whitethroat were the best of the day. 160 Linnets at Pyes was a good count. A possible Icky was seen briefly by fellow birders at Sea View but soon disappeared. Interesting by their absence, I didn't come across a single Whitethroat or Willow Warbler today.
