Light E wind, overcast broken cloud.
A quiet morning, a single Reed Warbler singing neat Belle Tout. Lot’s of recently fledged Linnet and Swallow out of the nest and being tended to. Marbled White and Dark Green Fritillary butterfly now on the wing across the headland. 6 Sand Martin were mixing with the local Swallows early evening. A sure sign of early south bound migrants.
A Cuckoo was seen near Belle Tout by Jake on the 18th June, an early departure no doubt. The Nightingale which has been with us since mid-April, has been heard again over the last 5 days. RHC had the second Golden Oriole of the spring on 8th June, a late Willow Warbler was heard on that date too. My first Hummingbird Hawkmoth of the year was seen on the 9th.
