On the 16th, I went to Farnham Heath, Surrey, where a possible male TWO BARRED CROSSBILL, had been seen. I say possible because it has not been confirmed as yet. Anyway the bird was there and very handsome it was. As to whether it is a TWO BARRED CROSSBILL or not, I will leave to the experts to decide. Also seen there were BRAMBLING and DARTFORD WARBLER.
There has been a slow trickle of returning migrants at my local patch, Moor Green Lakes. On the 31st, I saw my first returning SAND MARTIN, a pair of LITTLE RINGED PLOVER and male BLACKCAP, which was singing in a tree by the river. I'm certainly looking forward to seeing a lot more summer migrants in the coming weeks.
