Woodside Farm sighting reported by Jim Steele

A family of Whitethroats were busy scolding me.

A warm, humid day with little direct sunshine. There seemed to be a resurgence of singing birds - perhaps they are between broods. Blackbirds everywhere. Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Blackcap, a single Garden Warbler, Robin, Wren and Coal Tit. Overhead were plenty of Swifts, three Buzzard, a Kestrel, a gliding Heron and a high-altitude Common Tern. A family of Whitethroats were busy scolding me. Ringlet and Meadow Brown butterflies are now out, whilst there were hundreds of Common Blue damselflies and an impressive Emperor Dragonfly gave me a quick visual inspection. Jim
