Quiet on the reserve today apart from the Grey Wagtail on the brook, a singing Coal Tit and 5 Blackbirds at Lynmouth Road allotments and fly-over Chaffinch, Greenfinches and Goldfinches.

A Nursery-web Spider Pisaura mirabilis and a Flesh Fly were also seen.

In Fairlawn Road there were plenty of invertebrates, including 2 or 3 Nursery Web Spiders, a Dock Leaf Bug, a Red Admiral, a Yellow Dung Fly and what I think must be a Grey Damsel Bug Himacerus major - a 'first' for Montpelier. A Green Shieldbug was near Hurlingham Road. Long-tailed Tits were calling nearby.

More Long-tailed Tits were heard at Station Road, and a Robin was in the garden. At the station there were several birds at the feeders - a couple of Greenfinches, a Chaffinch, 2 Starlings, 2 or 3 House Sparrows and a few Collared Doves.
