There was no sign of the ♀ Whinchat this morning, and only the ♂ Wheatear was seen at Stanklyn Lane paddocks. Many Common Whitethroats were singing around the patch today as were Linnets, Yellowhammers, Skylarks and a single Willow Warbler.
I heard 5 singing Wood Warblers in the Wyre Forest with one showing exceptionally well below the disused railwayline. I also heard 1 singing Pied Flycatcher and saw 3 Tree Pipits. Along Dowles Brook I only had a single Dipper today but I have heard that 2 pairs succesfully nested there this year. Garden Warblers were very much in evidence with good numbers singing during the walk round and reasonable views were obtained of 2 of the birds.
