Well, i started off the day with high hopes of something rare, but that soon dwindled away as it was obvious there were very few new arrivals. 19 male Whitethroats were seen, all on territory by the looks of it. However 5 Wheatears and 5 Willow Warblers were probably new in, and a Corn Bunting was around the barn. A flock of 16 Whimbrel also flew over adding slight interest. But the highlight for me was this Common Seal on the river bank. An Early Purple Orchid was also out, my first of the year.
