Protocol: Stationary
40 species A record breaking day today from home. Quite a bit of activity brought in one new garden species; Lesser Whitethroat observed a short distance away in a neighbours hedge. The same hedge yielded several Common Chiffchaff a pair of Common Whitethroat a Garden Warbler (only my second record for home) and only the second Reed Bunting I have recorded from home.

It was the 6th consecutive record breaking month with 57 species recording the next closest August was last year with 49 species recorded. Overall total for the yard now stands at 95 species.
