8.00-10.00am - walk along very overgrown and bug-ridden bank of the Yarrow, not good for walking but great for the whitethroat, sedge warbler and reed bunting, also heron, oystercatcher & shelduck (7). Not much on the mono-cultured fields - a few lapwing and skylark, with corvids & pigeon on the rough ground nr the twin hedge. No raptors seen/heard.

No sign of the tern. 6 swift over Croston driving home.
