overnight heavy rain which brought a Latticed Heath to Dave’s trap (3rd
record) we did not bother going out till mid-morning and went straight to the “gully”
where a Spotted Flycatcher had joined the Redstart and a few Swallows and House
Martins headed south avoiding the pending rain showers. Raven flew over the
garden this afternoon while 8 Swift in the evening were probably feeding up
before they push off soon.
