Very warm and sunny with the light westerly breeze swinging round to the east by the afternoon, the Hooking census route was quiet, just producing 47 Ringed Plover, 66 Sanderling and 250 Golden Plover on The Links, a Gadwall on the loch (my first for a few weeks) and the usual big flocks of Lapwing, Curlew and Redshank in the fields around Hooking.

                Opened the nets in the evening at Holland which produced 2 Willow Warblers and 2 Pied Wagtails with the usual Linnets, Wrens and Blackbirds; 150 Linnets came into roost and the 4 Collared Doves were still present.
