Flaming June!

After emptying the moth trap, I took a stroll around the hayfields, the NE force 4-5 wind made an uncomfortable walk and totally unproductive stroll.
Over the Willow trail a flock of c70 Swifts were making light of the conditions. 
An hour sea watch from The point was not a great deal more productive, but at least it was sheltered and warm in the car.
Common Scoter: 4W
Gannet: 51E   11W
Sandwich tern: c20 o/s
Common Tern: c30 o/s
Guillemot: 4E
Auk sp: 11W
Swift: 8 in
Swallow: 1 out
This afternoon from Hanson some islands have at last appeared and a Hobby was chasing Mouse Martins. A coot was trying to build another nest infront the hide, the last 2 being washed away. In the Screen hide the Swallows are feeding 4 young, nearby the Green Woodpeckers are feeding young. 
 From the entrance track to the VC 2 more Hobby's entertaining a few visitors, from Dennis's a Ringed Plover and a Little Ringed Plover.
 Shark, 1 of 23 species of macro in this mornings catch.
Another one just for you Steve.
