Light at the end of the tunnel

Last weekend’s birds were a little more interesting of late with the pond producing Spotted Flycatcher and juvenile Barn Owl hunting in daylight on Saturday morning and Yellow-legged Gulls were the main feature on Sunday with 2 adult, 3 x 3rd summer, 3 x 2nd summer and 2 x 1st summers still present at 7am among the LBB Gull flock.
A Peregrine hunting over farborough bank and sitting on the bank for 15 minutes was originally reported as a juvenile female Peregrine based on size but I now believe it to be a hybrid thou what it was crossed with remains unsolved due to joggers flushing it before I could get a decent record shot.
Yellow Wagtail, Oystercatcher and Common Sandpiper also noted.
Brandon Marsh had Grass Snake and Comma butterfly when the sun finally showed as we were leaving after a brief visit.
