Two new species for the year were added in the form of a Sand Martin ringed at the Swallow roost and four Tree Pipits trapped at the obs and out on the moss.
This months movers and shakers are as follows:
1. Swallow - 317 (up from 4th)
2. Tree Sparrow - 258 (down from 1st)
3. Blue Tit - 217 (down from 2nd)
4. Goldfinch - 179 (down from 3rd)
5. Chaffinch - 150 (up from 6th)
6. Great Tit - 125 (same position)
7. Lesser Redpoll - 113 (down from 5th)
8. Willow Warbler - 89 (straight in)
9. Reed Warbler - 85 (straight in)
10.= Meadow Pipit - 68 (down from 7th)
Whitethroat - 68 (straight in)
Knocked out of the top ten were Blackbird (66) and Greenfinch (53). Just bubbling under are Wren (55), Dunnock (54), Robin (56) and Sedge Warbler (54).
What will happen in September? I expect Goldfinch, Chaffinch and Meadow Pipit to move up the order, but this of course will be weather dependant. We'll have to wait and see.
