A short walk down to the canal with my brother where we spent some time looking over the small fishing lakes. At least 3 Chiffchaffs in song with many more in the overhanging willows by the Gade River. We also saw our first 4 SWALLOWS of the year hawking over the water at the fisheries. It's always nice to see the summer migrants return! Not much else of note other than a Buzzard, 2 Red Kites, 1 Sparrowhawk and 2 Grey Wagtails.
