Migration in full swing

Another great Spring days guiding. steady passage of Swallow through the day interspersed with a few House & Sand Martin, good passage of 60+ Yellow Wags through the day, plus 30+ in amongst the cattle at Holme. Highlight for me was a 2nd cal year ICELAND GULL flying west at Gore Pt, Holme just after 9am - my 2nd ever record at Holme. Also single Ring Ouzel, 4 Wheatear, 1 Tree Pipit over, 3 reeling Grasshopper Warbler, a Willow Warbler in off the sea & 2 migrant Buzzard & 2 Marsh harriers high overhead whilst scanning for the WTS Eagle that sadly didn't quite make it past Scolt!! Obvious increase in Whitethroat & Sedge Wblr numbers today as well. Still 200 Brents & 5 Pinks, plus a cracking "black" Ruff out on the marsh & a 2nd cal year Med Gull.
