On Orcombe - 1 Yellow Wagtail, 2+ Tree Pipits, 1 Jay, 3 Grey Wagtails, 1 Chaffinch, 4+ Chiffchaffs, 5 Starlings, 3 Wheatears, c1/200+ Meadow Pipits and 1 Swallow. Additionally two Clouded Yellows and 1 Rush Veneer were noted, along with several Silver Ys.

There are still loads of Meadow Pipits in the top fields and a fair few were passing overhead today. Photo opportunities were, however, extremely limited.

Redshank, Redshank, Redshank, Spotted Redshank! Such a joy to see this bird on a daily basis at the moment...
