Still summer!   The warm, sunny conditions with a light easterly breeze produced 24 new birds through the morning with the highlight being the second River Warbler of the last few days - this time caught at lunchtime as I was closing the nets, there was a bigger audience this time with half a dozen birders near enough to come and have a look.    The total also included 2 Red-backed Shrikes, 2 White Wagtails, a Robin, a Redstart, 2 Reed Warblers, 3 Icterine Warblers, a Lesser Whitethroat, 3 Whitethroats, 3 Blackcaps and a Chiffchaff.

Red-backed Shrike - the first male to be caught this year
The Mistle Thrush was still in the garden along with a Nuthatch while birds from the surrounding area included a couple of singing Quail, a singing Golden Oriole from near Birkemose and a Black Kite cruising around.
