A look at the pond showed the female Goosander still present along with first summer and adult Yellow-legged Gull, Little Ringed Plover, Whitethroat, 2 Blackcap, 2 Yellow Wagtail, Hobby, 400 Swift, 5 Sand Martin, 2 Treecreeper and Goldcrest.
Butterflies included 4 Marbled White, 6 Meadow Brown, 8 Ringlet, 3 Large Skipper, 2 Small Skipper, 3 Speckled Wood and 2 Small Tortoiseshells plus 2 day flying Narrow-bordered Five Spot Burnet moths.
