now well established but no sign of any other summer visitors yet. The
surrounding scrub is still fairly quiet. We appear to have gained a couple of Bullfinches
pairs and two Song Thrushes sang for most of the morning. We had assumed the
pair of Kestrels seen at the western end of the common held territory over
most of it but when I drove through the control tower car park on the way out a male was
in display flight over; possibly there are two pairs this year.
