A Peregrine high southeast over Hither Field and the two Red-legged Partridges still in Broadfield represent the day's headlines. Eight singing Blackcaps, seven Chiffchaffs and 12 Linnets were counted at the farm, where a Tawny Owl and a Little Owl were also seen.

A Green Hairstreak was seen at Fames Rough, while a Holly Blue, a Small Tortoiseshell and 12 Brimstones were also in the BW sector. CF had four Orange-tips, five Small Tortoiseshells, a Speckled Wood, a Comma, six Brimstones, three Holly Blues and five Peacocks were at the farm.
