A very different morning than of late with completely overcast skies and a very light westerly wind; these perfect netting conditions produced 30 new birds through the morning - still a good total for June!   Birds included another Hawfinch, a female Red-backed Shrike, only the second Sedge Warbler of the spring, 2 Reed Warblers, 5 Icterine Warblers, 8 Whitethroats, 3 Garden Warblers and a White Wagtail.

The fourth Hawfinch of the spring - there were at least 4 in the garden this morning, possibly local breeders who lost their nests in the recent gales

A close up of those amazing inner primaries
There were literally no other birds to report through the day, even Louis drew a blank out on the tip!
