With the exception of the lessers a morning of cold crisp empty skies initially. A Cuckoo came in from the south east perched briefly in the wood before going on NW. A Herring Gull passed N with the lessers. No hirundines or Swifts at all to day. The most interesting thing this morning was a Dunnock pair which arrived at the watchpoint and chased around abit before moving off, only to return a short while later. They were at very close range and the immediate environs were without doubt attracting them!!
