Meadow Pipit - Dung Field
Disappointingly quiet on Orcombe Point this morning with a single whitethroat the only migrant of any note. A quick circuit of the top fields this afternoon produced a presumed continental song thrush.
A kestrel flying north upriver was an unusual sight - only the third (I think) I've ever seen from the house.
Yesterday was a bit better with 8+ chiffchaff, 1+ sandwich tern, 1 common tern, 1 blackcap, 2 red-throated diver, 1 willow warbler, 7 meadow pipit, 1 wheatear, 1 alba wagtail and 1 sparrowhawk. There was a single whimbrel off the Imperial too.
