The Serins were everywhere and Blackcaps were in abundance as were Goldfinch, Little Ringed Plovers, Pied Wagtails, Blackbirds, Black Redstarts, House Martins, Swifts, Tree Sparrows, House Sparrows, Spotted Flycatchers and, of course, Collared Doves. There were also two Common Sandpipers and a couple of Spotless Starlings.
