First Spot Flys

It has been a truly awful spring for migrants on Orcombe, so two spotted flycatcher in the hedge bordering the Bristol Schools field were much appreciated. They never came close, hence the dreadful record shot. Also this morning, 1 'Greenland' wheatear and a singing sedge warbler. Sea watching produced a single roseate tern, c20+ sandwich tern, 10 dunlin, 1+ sanderling, 6 great northern diver, including 2 close-in summer plumaged birds, holding their beaks open. Also 1 fulmar, 1 whimbrel and 1 swallow.
A quick look off the Imperial ground produced 8 bar-tailed godwit, c50+ dunlin, c20+ whimbrel, 2 pale-bellied brent goose and 3+ ringed plover.
