A Lesser Whitethroat was present and singing along Barrs Lane for a brief while this evening (TMH). This is the first record of this non-patch breeding species this year.
I arrived about 15 minutes later to meet up with Terry by which time the bird had flown. Whilst on the patch TMH pointed out a nice bit of Shepherd's Purse that is growing along Stanklyn Lane.
We then proceeded to have a quick check around to see what was about. There was no sign of the Little Owls this evening but a highlight came when a Hobby flew over Witch Lane heading East.
