Nothing very interesting this morning in the trap. However, I had a very good day at Dunge today. We started at the ARC pit where 3 or 4 Black Terns were present, with the juv. White-winged Black Tern that's been reported over the last couple of days. A Green Sandpiper and Little Stint were there while a Sparrowhawk and a few Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs were seen on the Willow Trail. We then tried for the Pied Flycatcher reported in the trapping area. No luck with that but there were 3 Spotted Flycatchers. After lunch there were another 4 Black Terns at the patch and an Arctic Skua headed west. Back on the reserve there were 2 Black Terns and 2 Common Sandpipers on Burrows. Finally late afternoon I caught up with the Whinchat on the reserve approach road.
