15 Aug:

Muggy (19C) with thickening cloud and brisk (10kph) NE breeze at dawn that kept the songbirds in cover.

Common Sandpiper 1 (seen by Dave flying near rocky island beach NE of Longbridge before 07:00).

Garden Warbler 1 (feeding on bramble berries near E end of Cricket Pen, area 31 at 08:10).

Willow Warbler 2 (with tit flock in area 34 at 07:30).

Chiffchaff 2 (calling in areas 9 and 10 at 06:15).

Little Grebe 12 [1ad & 2yg off E shore of Bandstand Island, area 7; 1ad & 2yg in area 35; 2 ad & 2yg (nearly fully-grown - a result!) in area 2, 1ad & 1 yg E of Heron Island, area 8].

Great Crested Grebe 2 (for the first time, they were not on the nest at NE tip of Heron Island but instead sleeping together nearby - I hope the clutch hasn't failed).

Swift 2.

House Martin 7.
