Monster Garden Tick and More Year Ticks

Now that the rain has stopped, time to get out on the patch and give it a good kicking ! And it started of with a monster in the garden - a Convolvulus Hawk-moth in the trap - garden tick ! Out on the patch it was obvious that there were birds to be found - no rarities, but 3 year-ticks - a Little Stint on Sanblister Beach, a Yellow Wagtail behind Colonial and a Garden Warbler in the garden. Other birds included 4 Willow Warblers, a Whinchat, 2 Swifts and a Ruff.
