A showery day with a cold NW wind, and a very unpromising start to the day at Fretherne with Mark and Mike produced nothing of note. 30 Sand Martins on Frampton sailing lake were a county year tick however. Back at Quedgeley me and Mark stopped off at the canal, were three Sand Martins (above and below) were just south of Rea Bridge. Three Chiffchaffs (bottom) were also here and three Long-tailed Tits. Another two Chiffchaffs, four Long-tailed Tits and a female Blackcap were along the stretch of canal south of The Pilot.
