Light meandering west wind, clear skies.

Almost unbelievable it’s June already, a month which can produce the odd scarcity here but undeniably marks a change of season with spring now in full transition towards midsummer. The whole area now in lush green hues.

Mornings are now often quiet birdwise but I remain hopefully. Today had a contextual feel with 2 out of habitat Reed Warblers singing (one in the hollow the other at Belle Tout) a Sedge Warbler sang enthusiastically opposite Shooters along with a newly arrived Willow Warbler, all of these birds without a hope of breeding this year, perhaps all of them being young, second calendar year birds explaining their late arrival. Hard to discount the small number of Swallow seen weren’t local breeders, although 2 passing Swift and a House Martin I took to be migrants.
