More WWs

Willow Warbler - another little fall of these this morning.
Foggy and quite chilly on Orcombe this morning. I recorded 7+ Chiffchaff, 12+ Willow Warbler, 5 Blackcap, 7+ Whimbrel, c20+ Swallow, 4+ House Martin, 1 Sand Martin, 1 Wheatear and 5 Meadow Pipit.
This afternoon I was pleased to find a male Dartford Warbler back on its traditional Exmouth territory. Also present - a singing male Yellowhammer, at least one Kestrel and 3 Jays.

Brown-tail Moth web.

The fog kept a nice little flock of hirundines low down around the Geoneedle. I reckon around 10 Swallow, at least 4 House Martin and 1 Sand Martin were zooming around in the gloom. Impossible to count accurately though as birds veered in and out of view along the cliff edge.

Today's only Wheatear didn't pause long.
