I suspect the pair of barn owls here are now, at least on eggs as there was no movement from their tree hole. Normally they move about if you pass, but today, no activity at all. A dusk visit to see if one, or both emerge to feed is required.
Chiffchaffs appeared to be everywhere, with at least 7 seen but no other migrants were noted. Whitethroats, sedge, reed and grasshopper warblers are now arriving, so, as is usual at this time of the year, it pays to be out as much as possible as almost anything can be seen moving overhead or resting in low branches.
