Went to Northward Hill today hoping it wouldn't be so hot (or crowded) as anywhere else. Was wrong on the hot front, it was very hot on the Sweeny viewpoint. But very few people about although we did later on bump into Trevor Hatton. Birds were few, but we did get Canada and Greylag Geese, Grey Heron, Little Egret, Jackdaw, Lapwing, Mallard, Coot, Tufted Duck, Great Crested Grebe, Buzzard, Marsh Harrier, BH Gull, Herring Gull, Lesser Black-backed gull, Linnet, Whitethroat, Chiffchaff, Mute Swan, Blackcap, Blue tit. Heard Cuckoo, Nightingale, Greenfinch, Green Woodpecker, Cetti Warbler.
Lots of Butterflies and a few Dragonflies including the Four Spotted Chaser I managed to photograph.
