6th August

On a day with seemingly not a great deal around it came to life in the afternoon when David Bunney found a Melodious Warbler in his garden and where it then showed intermittently until the early evening.

Four juvenile Yellow-legged Gulls were attracted to the offerings at the fishing boats this afternoon.
