Saturday 9th. Thinking heavy overnight rain might have grounded some migrants I visited Mill Hill but the only likely new arrivals seen during an hour of walking around were 3 Willow Warblers. A distant Cetti's Warbler was heard and 2 Buzzards, 2 Jays and a Yellowhammer seen. Later Megan and I visited Pulborough RSPB seeing a Sparrowhawk over our road as we left. A nice walk but juvenile Peregrine, 2 Swallows, Nuthatch, Jay and 2 Bullfinches were the best we saw.
