Tuesday 21st June 2016

A much better day from a weather perspective, with a singing Turtle Dove in the pines early in the morning the best bird of the day. The moth trap was reasonably productive with five Sharp-angled Peacocks and single Barred Straw, Turnip and Poplar Hawk-moth amongst those caught.

At Walsey Hills raptors provided the most interest with Red Kite, Buzzard, several Marsh Harriers, Hobby, Kestrel and Sparrowhawk seen during the morning, the only other notable birds were 2 Common Treecreepers present.

Recently fledged Common Treecreeper after processing - Walsey Hills, June 2016
