Migrants in the Vale

Mid-morning, 11 Whimbrel headed southwest over Bishopthorpe in a V, whistling as they went. Magic! In the evening, I headed to Wheldrake Ings, where at least one Whinchat was kicking about on Swantail, plus five Yellow Wagtails, a Greenshank, two Green Sands, a Hobby marauding the hirundines and a handful of Willow Tits. Good numbers of ducks now, with getting on for 100 Teal, a Wigeon and plenty of Mallard.
