As always at this time of year birding becomes much quieter in the lighthouse area. The spring migration is over and many summer visitors are now feeding newly fledged youngsters which have already left the nests. At least one pair of Willow Warblers and a pair of Whitethroats are feeding newly fledged and free flying young near the pond. Many other Whitethroats, Sedge and Reed Warblers are also carrying food in this area.
