The Black-tailed Godwit flock were well scattered but a record increase of Avocet numbered 33 birds with 2 adults and 2 chicks nearby. There were 2 Ringed Plover and 4 Redshank present.

The influx of Painted Lady Butterflies continues with them again present along the dusty tracks but in much reduced numbers. A couple of fine Brimstone’s were flying by.
