Birding from 0730 - East Soar lively in the morning, but the west side quiet this afternoon.

Highlight was a juv Red-backed Shrike which appeared in Starehole at 0840 but soon disappeared and I couldn't relocate it. Also: Tree Pipit (6), Yellow Wagtail (20+), Spotted Flycatcher (4), Willow Warbler (c25), Chiffchaff (10), Whitethroat (35+), Wheatear (only 2), Redstart (2), Green Woodpecker (1), Sedge Warbler (1), and Reed Warbler (1).

Another enjoyable day here.
