Little Egret again over Coney this evening.

Hirundines virually non-existant most of today so c25 House Martins over this evening around High Park was a decent count. Two or three Swallows earlier in the day around Harford Hill and Ladywood were the only other summer migrants seen except a few Chiffchaffs (some singing) plus a few Blackcaps.

Meadow Pipits in various places.

Tawny Owl calling this evening around Salwarpe and Water Rail calling at Coney. Around 30 Pied Wagtails roosted.
