If yesterday was relaxed, today was flat out on its back. Ringing totals again reached the dizzying heights of two, though today's species variety was half that of yesterday with both of this morning's birds being Common Chiffchaff.

Sightings of note included a Sand Martin whizzing north overhead and... well... pretty much as yesterday, less the Red Kite and any Wheatears. I took some time to have a look at some of the Bill's common residents include, of course, Dunnocks (of which there are plenty). I was particularly pleased with this individual: it's a 2cy male that was singing in the lighthouse garden.

I got really excited when I set the 'scope on it. You can see why, right?

Last night finished with a post-blog post Little Owl calling outside; this evening is finishing with a Red-legged Partridge calling from the obs crop field and a roast dinner.

Back to London tomorrow. Acton can offer phone signal and reliable internet, but it can't offer views like this...
