Almost completely dry now, a couple of hours here didn’t throw up much of any interest with birds. There were four Ringed Plover and a single Oystercatcher with a good number of Pied Wagtails and even larger numbers (30+) of Yellow Wagtails and a good flock of Linnets but very little else of note. So it was bug hunting but, although it was very warm, there were few Butterflies and even fewer Dragons – perhaps it was because of the heavy cloud cover. A good number of Emerald Damsels though but strangely all males!

Perhaps last night’s rain may liven things up.
