06:15-16-00 hrs ( East Soar / Starehole / Warren / Soar Mill Cove / Southdown etc. )

No overnight rain, 75% cloud cover at dawn. Very still and humid by early afternoon with a light S-SW wind picking up.

Lot of effort for not a lot namely Ringed Plover, Swift, 250 Swallows, 150 House Martins, 4 Yellow Wagtails, 10 Tree Pipits, 3 Wheatears, 3 Sedge Warblers, 13 Whitethroats, 9 Blackcaps, 15 Willow Warblers and 6 Chiffchaffs.

To all those rarities that hid away this time all i can say in my best Schwarzenneger voice is ......i'll be baaack.
