Dave Bilcock discovered a singing WOOD WARBLER early morning in the small wood just above Inkombe Hole. It showed well for several hours (allowing Ben Miller to finally get his Bucks first) but ceased trilling just after 1130 hours. It was seen again on several occasions up until early afternoon (1315) but then disappeared and was not seen or heard again. An excellent record.
There was also a major arrival of GARDEN WARBLERS in Top Scrub and the reeling GRASSHOPPER WARBLER was still present in scrub just SW of the Beacon.
The dawn patrol at Wilstone saw a SANDWICH TERN fly straight through, whilst a flock of 4 WHIMBREL (with another fly through) roosted on the algae bunds until 0620 hours before flying off east (DB et al).
