While June is a quiet month on the bird front, May is usually full of birdsong; this year there has been noticeably less singing from migrant breeding birds. One suggestion is that because their arrival was delayed by bad weather, they have got on with raising a family as soon as they arrived on territory. The generally warm and damp conditions appear to have benefitted birds and many young are now beginning to roam the countryside. Alastair.
