A Hobby flew over BW but as far as birds go it was generally another quiet summer day on the patch produced the usuals, such as Yellowhammer, Kestrel, Whitethroat, Goldcrests, Nuthatches, Green Woodpecker and Song Thrushes.

 In another productive day for butterflies, BW sightings included four Small Blues showing on the Kidney Vetch patch in Barn Field, two Dark Green Fritillaries, a Green Hairstreak, 60 Marbled Whites, six Large Skippers, 11 Small Skippers, five Commas, two Red Admirals, two Small Tortoiseshells, three Speckled Woods, 20 Ringlets, 80 Meadow Browns, eight Small Heaths and six Common Blues.
