Non-wildlife day

Just after dawn a Grey Heron went east chased by gulls.
Later at Mount Folly a couple of Swallows, presumably birds intending to be local breeders and a heard only Firecrest.

Back at the pond just this Myathropa florea, an unidentifiable Cheilosia and this Red Admiral. Far fewer insects than three weeks ago. Overhead four or more Med Gulls went east and on the pond just a couple of small Mallard broods, the rest presumably having been predated plus lots of loafing large gulls. A Blackcap was singing strongly from the taller trees adhjacent to 'Stagg Woods'.
