Warm and sticky

Disgustingly humid today, with a continual threat of heavy rain which never quite materialised. Bird-wise still pretty quiet, though still lots singing and a lots of birds carrying food. Hopefully the warm weather over the last couple of weeks has allowed the late breeders to have a decent season.
Now a total of 7 Eider chicks (pretty paltry!), still just one brood of Shelducks but probably 12 fledged Redshanks which is pretty good, 10+ Lapwings with a few large young still to fly, and at least 3 juv Stonchats on the wing.

I guess that's spring migration over and done with, but this place has in previous years attracted a few ridiculous rarities during the "quiet" months of June & July. We'll see...
