A pair of Green Woodpeckers and a couple of pairs of Great Spotted Woodpeckers could be heard around the Glen. A Cuckoo flew over the Glen Road and across the 'horse-field'. At least 16 Willow Warblers were in full song, 19 Swifts and a couple of House Martins were feeding over the Glen and a Red Kite drifted over. Four Reed Buntings were singing on the open ground, Meadow Pipits were carrying food and juvenile birds in the form of Blackbird, Starling and Mistle Thrush were about.
