On the scrape this morning were a dunlin and a ringed plover,these two birds bringing my site list up to 100 species this year.This is way more than I’ve seen previously by this time.In fact the ringed plover is the first one I’ve ever seen here.

Also on the scrape was a green sandpiper.4 wheatears remained,along with over 100 (mixed) swallows and house martins over rapeseed fields near the river with 6 yellow wags there too.Lots of common warblers sang and cetti’s song reached a higher decibel scale than ever.

A sparrowhawk swooped down to the feeders near the hide and 2 buzzards soared overhead.
