    Good news with the lapwing chicks. We had two adults there last week but no juvs seen then. A walk round Sandbach park this morning and plenty of birds down by the pools but by far the best was a Common Redstart.

    Thanks to John for a lift and a joint visit to Doddington this morning. Nothing special but enough for a WeBS core count and to confirm breeding for tufted duck when a female appeared with six small ducklings. Then a pleasant hour in Wybunbury churchyard looking for Spotted Flycatcher; pleasant but no success.

    I was at Pumphouse Flash, Sandbach Flashes, when a guy stopped his van to tell me that the previous day he had come across a mute swan that had died there of avian flu. He reported it to the police but did not know what happened then.

    I did a survey of the Haslington swift colony last night. Conditions were perfect – warm, dry, no wind, after 9pm – and I only counted six birds, although two were seen to fly under the eaves to a nest. Numbers have been around ten for several years now but looking back at the 1995 swift survey there were over 100 birds in this colony!
