Took dog out early to avoid the heat later on. Walked down by Velator harbour and back, then out to the scrape. Both Kingfisher and Dipper in or through the harbour area. 1 Black-headed Gull,15 Mallard, but no sign of the Pintail seen yesterday. Singing Reed Warbler, and 3 Whitethroats along the way. First Swallow I have seen in the area for several weeks. Scrape too full of water.
