After a fairly slow period early summer migrants are now starting to arrive in force with Chiffchaffs singing at a number of locations this morning. An obliging drake Garganey was still present in the somewhat atypical surroundings of Northstead Manor Gardens. A visit to Potter Brompton Carr was fairly quiet although a Snow Bunting heading NW was new for that site. Two Dunlin were also new, whilst duck numbers continue to decline here with 38 Teal, 22 Wigeon and 14 Gadwall present.
