A juv Black necked grebe was showing well and has been present for about a fortnight. It was fairly steady and gave me some inquisitive looks between feeding dives. Blackcaps and whitethroats feeding in the elderberries but no sign of the recent lesser whitethroat. 2 green sandpipers were seen early on by Chris D but I only managed a common sand and a little ringed plover on no3 res. A juv wheatear was new in today.
