A pleasant sort of a day and it was kicked of with not one but two Treecreepers beneath the viaduct at Bennerley, a nice surprise and a year tick ! Still a few Swallows passing through Bennerley. Up around Cossall it was all Buzzards and Migrant Hawker Dragonflies, but there was a single Chiffchaff and a single Blackcap in the same tree so, that was handy !
