9th July

A really wet day, so not much birding undertaken.

Common Terns:
Yesterdays five flew in at 5.55am, they were joined by another family group in the afternoon.
Sand Martin: Two birds were feeding over the lake with up to 40 House Martins and a similar number of Swifts.
Chiffchaff: A bird with a very broken song was singing or trying to sing in area 1.

These pictures show the difference in the two juvenile Common Terns.

Below the adult male shows aggression to the newly arrived youngster.
