21st June

A bright and unexpectedly blustery day saw yesterday's single Rosy Starling show up again at Weston where it was soon discovered that it had a companion, with both remaining in situ all day. A fly-by Serin over Easton was another nice mid-summer scarcity but other interest was minimal to say the least: a handful of Swifts looked to be departing from the Bill but there was little else of note on land or sea.

And one became two: it may be that there were already two Rosy Starlings at Weston, since no sooner had what was assumed to be yesterday's bird been relocated then it was realised there were actually two birds present - an adult male and a female/immature - they remained together for the rest of the day © Martin Cade:
