Hi Tony
5 Swallows through between 9.30-12.30.
Area 30: 2 Brimstone & 3 Orange tips (males) in 'Butterfly Meadow'.

Monday 4.30pm area 8: My first Long-tailed tit fledglings of the year, at least 4 young in trees at college entrance by Clarence bridge. The short tails almost make them look like a different species.
