17th August 2018 After a cold front

The previous days wet weather had cleared away by evening, behind it cooler & drier air with 17th dawning clear and calm. I only covered the area between the pub, radio mast and bushes down to & including the old trapping area.

The passing cold front left some activity in it’s wake with c40 Willow Warbler, c18 Common Whitethroat, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 3 Sedge Warbler, 2 Reed Warbler, 1 Garden Warbler (singing at times), 1 Wheatear.  2 Tree Pipit, c7 Yellow Wagtail and a high flying Ringed Plover passed over. Also worth a mention were 5 Robin, first I’ve seen up on the headland and undoubted birds moving around. Tying in with hearing local birds start to sing again as they stake out their winter territories.
