Another hot day with next to no overhead migration apart from singles of Curlew, Whimbrel, Tree Pipit, six Yellow Wagtails and five Crossbills. Grounded migrants were 12 Reed Warblers, six Lesser Whitethroats, 15 Whitethroats, two Blackcaps and four Willow Warblers. In the Freedown there were 14 Yellowhammers consisting of two separate family parties.

In the afternoon a Grey Plover flew over Kingsdown.

A short circuit around the Paddock, Droveway and Freedown during which time I didn't see a single other person! Sadly the birds were similarly scarce with three Firecrest (two Droveway and one in Wood) being the highlight. Siskins were again moving with one group of 11 seen and other groups heard but not seen. No Chiffchaffs were encountered
