Firstly, a check for the garden warblers that frequent the ride near East Wood. They have been present for several years now and, again, I heard the male singing as I arrived. After a short while a reasonable photo, too.

Another whitethroat at Ivy Farm whilst goldfinches, skylarks and a lone swallow along Green Street.
Into Millfield Lane and more singing blackcaps and another garden warbler before a male yellowhammer on the roof of the cottage.
3 types of ladybird were seen, with over 15 7 spotted ladybirds, 1 10 spot and 1 harlequin.

A bumble bee joined me in my search as I came across some mating weevils and a dark bush cricket.
