A few migrants

A singing Blackcap by the river in Bish this morning was my first of the year. On to Spurn for work where I met Andy Gibson and Adam. A few migrants about including my first Swallow of the year which flicked over the Warren mid-afternoon. A fine Black Redstart was flycatching from the cottages on the Point and an equally smart male Wheatear was on the fence by the Warren. Other migrants noted included a couple of Redwings, several Goldcrests and a female Brambling. 30 Fieldfares were seen near Patrington on the way home. Lots of Tawny Owl activity by the river tonight with at least two families making a right racket. The wind has gone southerly again so eyes on the skies for the prize, Apus melba perhaps.
