Sunday 0930. Nothing out of the ordinary, that said, won’t be much around Linacre Bridge this morning if those 2 shady characters in the flooded fields keep shooting anything that moves it seems.

Just briefly seen a distant hirundine sp. over Hawford fishing pools. It was short-tailed and flew like a House Martin - unfortunately couldn't get any more details on it and, at this time of year, rarer species can't be ruled out - however unlikely. Unless I see it again I'm afraid I'll have to chuck it.

2 Common Gulls over there also - an adult and a 1w.
Cetti's Warbler singing.
