View of North Lake and light overcast sky with a east sector wind in prime time spring- the recipe for a good fall

What a pleasant day with migrants everywhere on the farm. By the end of the day we had racked up 1 male Ring Ouzel (a fly-over!), 2 Whinchat, 5 Wheatear, 15+ Yellow Wagtail, 75+ Swallow, 60+ House Martin, 200+ Swift, 2 Sand Martin, 1 Hobby, 4 Lesser Whitethroat, 1 Willow Warbler, 4 Sedge Warbler, 10+ Whitethroat, 10+ Blackcap, 3 Reed Warbler, the Cetti's, 6 Chiffchaff, 3 LRP, 1 Ringed Plover, 1 Greenshank, 2 Common Sandpiper, 2 Common Tern N and the Iceland Gull was about too.

Blinking brilliant!
