The 2021 Summer Walk took place on the morning of 26 June, with four participants. The weather was mild and mainly cloudy. The following 21 species were recorded. The Grey Partridge heard calling in area C was a first for our Walks (Red Partridges being much commoner, though none were recorded today). Once again, no Swallows or Swifts were seen – a concerning phenomenon noted widely across the country in recent years. (House Martins, on the other hand, though not recorded on this particular Walk, are still seen in reduced numbers in Area A, as was also the case last year).
