There was still little going on at the farm but a Garden Warbler showed quite well around the south end of Green Belt Field, one or two of the Red-legged Partridges was showing in Broadfield, five Swallows flew through and two Canada Geese were knocking about. Three Swifts, a Cormorant and a group of four Lesser Black-backed Gulls also flew over, 13 singing Whitethroats were counted at the farm and a Little Owl was seen at Legal & General.

Two Hobbies were seen at Banstead Woods.

Other wildlife in BW included Orange-tip, Red Admiral, Brimstone, Peacock and a Common Lizard.
