Grey Wagtails



Fifteen Grey Wagtails over a very misty Orcombe Point this morning. Also 8+ Wheatears, 6+ Yellow Wagtails, 8+ Tree Pipits, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 1 Goldcrest, 1 Willow Warbler, 1 Whitethroat, 1 Chiffchaff, 6 Phyllosc sp, 1 Alba Wagtail and 1 Whimbrel.
Again it felt quite good this morning but there was very little grounded. Yesterday's Lesser Whitethroat was still in the same spot and the Goldcrest was the first of the autumn.

Common Blue - lots of these on the wing at the moment. Painted Lady also seen today.

Yellow Belle - my first on Orcombe (and only my second ever). Nick had one back in the spring. This is a second generation individual.
