Amongst the regular wildfowl and waders on Castle Lake this morning were 2 Dunlin and 2 Lesser Black-backed Gull, while one female Goldeneye remains. Kestrel and Sparrowhawk overflew. Meadow Pipit and Pied Wagtail numbers are slowly increasing with seven of the latter on Castle Lake with further birds on the A1 Flashes and Alan's Pool.

100 Curlew were on the A1 Flashes.

4 Chiffchaff were singing in the Fishburn Lake area alongside Bullfinch, Yellowhammer and Reed Bunting.

A few Small Tortoiseshell Butterflies were on the wing as was a Buff-tailed Bumblebee.
