3.8.19 First Pied Flycatchers

A warm sunny morning with a light east wind.

Things are really picking up a pace now with a decent movement of birds off a light east wind over night, I must at this point thank John and Doreen Cooper for alerting me to how good the morning was as I had foolishly decided to concentrate on work.

Pied Flycatcher,

A mixed bag along with good numbers really highlights the pleasure of August birding here with JFC’s Willow Warbler estimate at c70. No less than 3 Pied Flycatcher (a good count for such an early date) and a single Redstart (JFC), my first Yellow Wagtail and Golden plover of the season went over. All other common migrant warblers are present in varying numbers.
