With visibility down to 20
yards early morning all we managed at the pond was 4 Grey Wagtail, 2 Little
Egret, Wheatear and 20 Meadow Pipit.

Napton on the Hill was lacking in
passerines and just had Great-spotted Woodpecker, Green Woodpecker, 14 Raven, 6 Buzzard, Peregrine and a few groups of
martins and swallows going over. Could not find the Stonechat at Napton
Reservoir but Whinchat, Jay, 6 Raven, 6 Buzzard and juvenile Hobby made up for it. Two Wigeon also present. When
the sun came out we managed 2 Comma and a Small Copper on Napton on the Hill
and Napton Reservoir had plenty of Dragonflies with Brown Hawker, Migrant
Hawker, Common Darter and Common Blue Damselfly noted. Stoat seen on Napton on
the Hill was my first there for some time.
