9th May

Yellow legged Gull 1st summer

Hobby: 1 flew high to the south at 8.30am.
Willow Warbler: 1 singing in area 1.
Reed Warbler: Still only one present in area 2.
Swift: Birds were present throughout the day, though not in large numbers.
House Martin: Birds were flying up to the building they nest on in Park Road.
Grey Wagtail: 1 perched briefly on one of the rowing boats.
Common Tern: The pair are still present with male going off to fish on the canal and bringing it back for the female. We made a few alterations to the tern raft in the hope they will use it. Wire was erected to try a deter the Cormorants, who are becoming more approachable every year.
Yellow-legged Gull: A 1st summer was on the lake from 11.00am.

Six house martins above lake at lunchtime. Saw one of the terns on the boat they like to use. Heard the reed warbler briefly. Where are all the warblers? Speckled wood butterfly on the way to Area 29.

I think the weather has held them back. In Norfolk numbers of all the common migrants were down.
