Still and clear conditions overnight left a good covering of frost across the station first thing but this gave us a return to the beautiful, sunny, calm days that we enjoyed before yesterday's blip; it was also a return to the ringing numbers of a few days ago with a busy rush of action just after dawn before rapidly diminishing returns produced a quiet rest of the day.   Ringing totals this morning included 22 Lesser Whitethroats, 14 Willow Warblers, 5 Blackcaps, 2 Redstarts and a Pied Flycatcher, mostly in the busy first hour.

Redstart and Pied Flycatcher
A Corn Bunting was singing from the front field in the morning, a Sparrowhawk flashed through the garden and 3 Black-throated Divers flew east - that was the best I could come up with through the rest of the day!

Record shot of the first Dragonfly of the year - possibly a Hairy Dragonfly Brachytron pratense I think but that's just a guess really, can anyone tell me?
