We didn't expect much, but surprisingly caught 48 new birds and a control.
Meadow Pipit ; 4
Wren ; 4
Dunnock ; 3
Robin ; 2
Blackcap ; 8, some of these were carrying high fat deposits, therefore they may have been here a while and now getting ready too move.
Chiffchaff ; 5 + 1 control, EPE425 Anyone?
Goldcrest ; 16
One each of Long-tailed Tit, Blue Tit, Great Tit and Chaffinch
Reed Bunting ; 2

There was no visible migration going on, and the only noteworthy sighting was 4 Cranes flying over calling loudly.
When the sun came out so did the insects, with at least 2 Small Coppers, 2 Comma and 25 Common Darters.
