This morning noteable for a Grasshopper Warbler reeling from the juncus near the lagoons!! Otherwise lots of Wheatears about with just about all that could be seen well showing the characteristics of the Greenland race. A Ring Ouzel was beyond the quarry. Another wader day with four Dunlin, two Ringed Plovers and a Turnstone feeding on the pitching. A few Swallows and six Swifts continued north off the NW end of the reservoir.
