Light overcast,NW 8:30am-10am.
Walking around the lakes this morning I got the impression that many of the summer visitors have already moved out,unless of course it was just the dreaded NW wind. For instance I saw no Blackcaps or Willow Warblers and only ones and twos of Chiffchaff,Reed Warbler,Lesser and Common Whitethroat.The total species count was (33).Birds of note seen were - Teal (5) along the river and Linnet (1) near the sunken marsh.

During the afternoon Jeanette and I had a walk around Ranscomb Farm,Cuxton.Very little was seen in the way of birds apart from a flock of 20 Linnets and one Hobby.
