Had an early wander along the cliffs to see if Roy's Ring Ouzel might still be present. Sadly not, but a cracking male Whinchat was some compensation, along with a male Yellowhammer, lots of Whitethroats, a small movement of Swallows heading north with a couple of Sand Martins and three Swifts. An interesting song by the gate eventually showed what I suspected: Garden Warbler! There was also a Red-legged Partridge out in one of the fields. 4 Wheatears were on rough ground at the top of the hill.

Great shot of the Stork Roy!
