Still immersed in admin work after my return but managed a couple of outings locally. Generally things seem quiet but Willow Warbler in one of the two bushes (!) in the garden showed migration was in progress. Two very juvenile Goldfinches suggested breeding nearby. After a late start there are at least five young Swallows in the barn, which requires a couple of inspections per day as they manage all too often to get caught up in things!
The group of nine Choughs is still around and two young Wheatears were presumed locally bred. The weather has changed dramatically with fresh winds and rain so returning to forms, bills and computer work has not been too much of a hardship!!!
