This morning on the reserve: a Common Whitethroat singing and showing well across the iron bridge, a Chiffchaff, 2 Blackcaps and a pair of Grey Wagtails on the brook.

I am absolutely thrilled to record my first ever Baccha elongate hoverfly! Always wanted to see this species. It was at Lynmouth Road. Other insects included a Cryptocephalus beetle, a Sawfly species, a Nettle-tap Moth and a Green Shieldbug.

Along Hurlingham Road was a nice flowering Guelder-rose and lots of Cleavers.

A juvenile Blackbird was in the garden and nearby a flock of at least 13 Magpies were on a roof in Richmond Road.
