Sunshine Day!

 Hirundines at The Moat
As I drove along the approach road to the observatory the sky was full of House Martins and Swallows. A walk around The Desert with AJG found the Wryneck still present, but only 2 each of Common Whitethroat and Blackcap, 8+ Chiffchaffs, a few Siskins, Meadow Pipits and Goldfinches over,
A stroll around the ARC was very pleasant, a couple of Marsh Harriers were over the Tower Pits and 2 Common Buzzards over the airport, 2 Cetti's Warblers, 4 Chiffchaffs, a Blackcap and Common Whitethroat were seen at The Pines, over the lake a party of c70 Golden Plover were looking for somewhere to settle, alas there are no longer any islands for them.  Another wander around The Point this afternoon in the gloriously warm sunshine was fruitless, though the Hirundines were still moving through.
The Cattle Egret was reported as still being present late afternoon, also 2 Spoonbills flew over per PT.
