This morning there were five Ringed Plovers and a Dunlin on the Slurry Lagoon. The Cuckoo was calling, eventually from one of the Deep Pit fence posts. A good number of Hirundines and Swifts were feeding over the site, including one or two House Martins. PS.
Two Greenshank flew around the Slurry Lagoon before settling on the Wader Scrape this afternoon. A Hobby was seen chasing the migrating hirundines that were feeding near the railway bridge and a Clouded Yellow butterfly flew across the site heading north. RW.
