Middleton Nature Reserve
Some of the warblers seeemed to have stopped singing, including the Sedge Warblers! The only ones heard were: Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Common and Lesser Whitethroat, Cetti's Warbler and Blackcap.
The Mute pair on the "no swimming" pond ended up with just the 4 chicks

No sign of either of the Redstarts, but one or both may still be within the Power Station grounds.
Rock pipits - female taking food to nest, male standing guard, a third bird was chased away twice.
If you sit on the wall near the lighthouse the male stands guard within 2m of you.
I doubt he's as charmed by the experience as me! (MD - I didn't stay long)
Moths - Mother Shipton 4
Butterflies - Common Blue, 2 male and 1 female.
Both males very worn for so early in season, either wind battered of they have travelled some way to get here, or both. (MD)
