Very still & hot, clear conditions the night before.
Pied Flycatcher in the Old Trapping Area.
I only covered the area of the main carpark, west of the pub, the pub it’s self the top bushes and the old trapping area. The surprise of the morning were 3 to 4, early Pied Flycatchers in keeping with a national trend for this species this year. Swifts featured quite prominently with maybe c150 to c200 around the headland first thing (with big numbers passing high over town throughout the day), about c20 Sand Martin also passed through east. The bushes weren’t overly busy with c12 Willow Warbler, 5 Reed Warbler, c30 Whitethroat and 2 Lesser Whitethroat.
