Birding at Last !

Apart from an all to brief visit to Fair Isle, that's a month of 12 hour nights over with ! Now off work for a week just as the wind is set to go south-east again. Out on the patch today and migrants were a bit thin on the ground, with just 1 Willow Warbler, 1 Chiffchaff, 1 Blackcap and a Song Thrush, bucking the trend though were 24 Swallows and 2 House Martin. A bit better showing with the waders - 61 Sandering, 34 Purple Sandpipers, 9 Dunlin, 2 Whimbrel, 1 Knot and 39 Turnstone.
