   A visit to the Forest of Dean today, to see if any summer migrants had arrived for the breeding season.
   A gathering of people, brought the first result of the day, as 2 Wild Boar sows and 6 piglets were seen feeding opposite the Boys Grave car park.
   First migrant stop was Speech House, where last year there had been a pair of breeding Redstarts. They were there again, but very flighty. After a while i managed some decent shots of the male. While doing this i found a Treecreepers nest, and the pair were already feeding young.

Common Redstart

Tree Pipit
   On to Moseley Green to see if there are any Tree Pipits in, had 1, could quite easily have been more though!
