Tried some more sites for LEOs and found an adult hunting at one and two juvs hunger calling at another. Also found a new Barn Owl site and had 3 Shorties hunting the moors. 2 Woodcock were roding and Snipe, Lapwing, Curlew and Oystercatchers were found in good numbers.

Finally got a good bird for Roils Head this year, a singing Garden Warbler, probably only my second at this site. Also female Blackcap present, Willow Warblers carrying food and 2 Herring Gulls east. 4 House Martins just back at local site, very late this year.

DF found a Knot at Ringstone today, so we had a quick look at that before moving off to our usual site which held 9 Hen Harriers and 9 Short-eared Owls, 2 of which were in full display. Also Sparrowhawk, 2 Buzzards, 6 Kestrels, 1 Redshank, 1 Raven, lots of Curlew, Oycs and Lapwings and 3 Grey Partridge to end off a good day.
