started the morning with a walk around culver. some new ones for the year - wheatear, willow warbler, blackcap, stonechat, plus three goldcrests and a pair of long-tailed tits were building a nest. later went out west and visited a couple of sites i'd not been to before. shalfleet quay had about 60 meds loafing on the island, with a flow of birds coming in from newtown and leaving sw. lots of calling and displaying, lovely birds. then had a walk along the north side of hamstead to the entrance of newtown harbour where a rope swing was the highlight. remarkably spotted another pair of lttits building a nest right in front of the car at shalfleet car park, this time not buried in a gorse bush.
