Lutley Wedge 29/07/11 07.10am (14°c) Cool cloudy and overcast. Wind (E/NE) F2

Very much the highlight in patch terms today and a welcome patch year tick were (2) Mute Swans that flew in high over the Top Footpath at 09.45am heading North. Mute Swan is a 'rare passage visitor' at Lutley Wedge with only a handful of previous records! Other oddities on the move this morning included (6) Cormorant that flew in from the WNW and headed off to the SSW.
