A cloudy start slowly cleared to leave another warm, sunny, calm day with the wind in the west; there were a few bits around in the morning as I managed to catch 44 new birds with the 7th Red-breasted Flycatcher of the year creating a new spring record for this species.   Other migrants caught included 8 Icterine Warblers, 3 Redstarts, a Reed Warbler, 5 Whitethroats, 7 Garden Warblers, a Blackcap and 16 Willow Warblers (they're back!).

Two Honey Buzzards came in and a Serin flew over the garden in the morning while there were a selection of migrants just north of us that we are lacking in the nets so far this spring with 4 Common Rosefinches, a Wryneck, 3 Red-backed Shrikes and 2 singing Marsh Warblers around Birkemose and just beyond.
A Black Kite was fighting with a Short-eared Owl over the station in the evening.

Northern White-faced Darter Leucorrhinia rubicunda (probably!)
