A fine day the east wind easing to a light breeze although enough to keep a cap on the temperature.
Another incremental change in the season is marked by the arrival of my first Nightingale of midsummer, these birds gradually begin to appear and it would seem moult, after breeding a few miles to the north of here. Usually their high pitched whistles and wooden croaks are all that allude to their presence although this one was quite showy by Nightingale standards.
There’s an abundance of fledged Whitethroat, Linnet and Stonechat upon the headland at the moment. A small group of Shelduck high to the east at dusk were probably British birds off on their “moult migration” to the Wadden Sea.
