Hello Tony
28th June: Common Tern over St John's Lodge going east at 7.22pm. 40+ Starling flock in pre-roost display above Longbridge at 7.30pm. Also looks very likely that the 3rd male Reed Warbler has a mate: saw a second pair of birds in the right area -they appeared leisurely and in good condition; not in any hurry to collect food unlike the other pair who appeared frantic (and not so clean) as they zipped backwards and forwards with food for the fledgings.

Also 1 Female Mandarin with 3 well advanced ducklings on the canal by Charbert St bridge at 6pm.
